Celebration 2014, scheduled for Thursday, July 3, will begin at 3 p.m. this year when the carnival rides open. There will be 14 rides this year, the most ever, with three major rides added.

The entertainment portion of Celebration will also begin earlier in the day this year, starting at 4 p.m. The bands will be announced in the next several weeks.
The free-to-the public event will also include the area’s largest fireworks display which will begin around 10 p.m.

“We believe Celebration is about family and kids, and that is what we are concentrating on this year,” said Martinsville Speedway President Clay Campbell. “Above all else, we want to make sure the children have the most fun possible. We’re still going to have great bands, but we are putting more resources toward the carnival area.”

The carnival rides will include: Tempest, Paratrooper, Rock-O-Plane, Way-Out Swing, Helicopter Ride, Lovely Lady Bugs, Hampton Motorcycle Ride, Thomas the Train, Super Slide, Moser Drop Zone, Merry-Go-Round, Frolic, Super Trucks and Hog Drop.

Celebration 2014 once again is free to the public, with the cost of the event covered by generous donations from almost 40 area businesses, non-profits and local government. It is a non-alcoholic event with concessions available.

“It always amazes how this community comes together to make sure Celebration happens every year,” said Jeb Bassett, in his sixth year as lead fundraiser for the event. “Celebration has become part of our community tradition here in Martinsville and Henry County and it is something we all should be very proud of.”

Bassett added that several new sponsors were added this year.
