NOLANVILLE — City officials, council members and residents are getting a head start planning the second annual Trainwhistle Jamboree. A group met Tuesday night at the J.W. Sims Community Center to review plans for the September event.

City Manager Stephen Pearl asks the community to mark the calendars to participate in the day’s excitement and entertainment

“It’s a chance for us to give back to the citizens and just have a good and big get-together for everybody to come out and just have some fun,” he said. “The activities are all free.”

Pearl said he expected attendance to top the 700 people who came out for last year’s inaugural event.

The group discussed sponsor packages for the event, which will help fund live music, face painting, bounce houses and a fireworks show.

“It’s a central location where they can meet their neighbors and have some fun doing it,” Councilman Dennis Biggs said. “And they will also learn about the history of the town. We just want to get more people to help get it rolling.”

Food and craft vendors are also needed for the jamboree, Pearl said.

The Trainwhistle Jamboree is scheduled from 2 to 7:30 p.m. Sept. 14 behind Kay’s Motorcycle Mania at 103 S. Main St., Nolanville. Anyone interested in volunteering can call City Hall at (254) 698-6335.
