Published 12:00 am Saturday, July 1, 2000

Cambrian Ridge Golf Course will be the site of the biggest Fourth of July clebration this area has seen in years, perhaps ever, and organizers are inviting the entire community to come out and enjoy the festivities.

With feature entertainers Marty Rabon ans Sawyer Brown, a world-class fireworks display and plenty of food and fun, sponsors Pioneer Electric Cooperative and Acme Propane have couple with Cambrian Ridge to make the Fourth of July, 2000, a very special event,.

A Firecracker Scramble golf tournament will kick off the festivities with check-in opening at 10 a.m., a deli buffet for the golfers at 11 a.m. and tee times beginning at noon.

At 3:30 p.m., shuttle busses will begin bringin out the public from three locations in Greenville. Busses will leave from Wal-Mart, Goody's and Fred's parking lots, and are color coded so passengers will remember which bus to take when leaving the event.

Officials from Pioneer and Cambrian Ridge say no Family Fourth parking will be allowed on the grounds of the golf course, so the busses are being offered for the safety and convenience of those in attendance.

In all there will be more than 50 busses on the shuttle routes, which will alleviate long lines and long waits, but organizers are saying to allow about an hour for travel time. The last bus headed for the concert departs at 5:30 p.m.

Local blues band Tail Dragger will kick off the entertainment for the evening and begin their performance around 4 p.m.,

followed by Marty Raybon who will take the stage at 6 p.m.

Sawyer Brown will begin their performance at 7:30 p.m., and the fireworks display will begin around 8:50.

Tail Dragger will take the stage again after the fireworks to provide some mood music while the shuttle busses load.

The entire event is free to the public, but advanced tickets are required. In Greenville, tickets can be found at Pioneer Electric, 300 Herbert Street, or at Acme Propane at 410 Greenville Bypass. In Georgiana, tickets can be found at Pioneer's location at 284 Mill Street.
