Turning Point Parade and Festival this weekend Parade kicks-off at 1 p.m. Sunday; fireworks display starts at 9 p.m. The Turning Point Parade and Festival, Schuylerville’s major annual event, will be highlighted this year by a junior drum corps competition. This is the 19th year for the festival, which takes place on Saturday and Sunday, Aug. 3 and 4 at Fort Hardy Park in Schuyerville. This year’s theme, “Community Pride: The Green Sabres – Ambassadors of Good Will,” centers on Schuylerville’s own legendary corps from years past. Organized in 1949, the Green Sabres’ 30 years of accomplishments included many championship trophies and representing New York State in President Kennedy’s inaugural parade in 1961. The group also participated in the New York City World’s Fair in 1964, President Johnson’s inaugural parade in 1965, and EXPO ’67 in Montreal, Canada. In the 1970s, they reformed as a junior corps that marched and competed until disbanding in 1979. “They were very well-known and very good,” said Turning Point festival organizer Jean Driscoll. She noted that at least 20 alumni from the Green Sabres will be marching in the Turning Point Parade. At 3:30 p.m. on Sunday, Aug. 4 at the Schuylerville Central School athletic field, there will be a Drum Corps Associates junior drum corps competition featuring the Windsor Regiment, the Centurions, the Bushwackers, and the Excelsior Drum & Bugle Corps. Tickets are $10 and will be available at the gate. If the competition is a success, said Driscoll, the Turning Point committee hopes to grow it into an annual event. The weekend kicks off at 1 p.m. on Saturday, Aug. 3, with the Turning Point festival at Fort
Hardy Park. There will be carnival and pony rides, amusements and vendors. At 4 p.m. on Saturday, a hot dog eating contest will take place, followed by a Village Idol competition at 5 p.m. At 7 p.m., don’t miss the Old Fashioned Street Dance in the park with DJ Jenni “A.” A large bonfire at 9:30 p.m. will feature a group playing African drums. On Sunday, the Turning Point Parade steps off at 1 p.m. from Spring Street and proceeds down Broad Street to the General Schuyler House at the south end of the village. The one and one half hour parade will feature many floats and 15 musical marching units, said Driscoll. Among those marching are the Adamsville Ancients, Capital Brass, Fyfes & Drumms of Olde Saratoga, Galloway Gaelic Pipes & Drums, the Yankee Doodle Band and the Avante Guard Drum Line. Some of the drum corps competing in the competition, the Excelsior Drum & Bugle Corps and the Windsor Regiment, are also marching in the parade. Other parade participants include the famed Oriental Shriners/Keystone Kops, re-enactors, floats, fire companies, veterans, military drill teams, and antique cars. After the parade, the festival continues in the park with music by Jack Zucchini of the Zucchini Brothers band at 5:30 p.m., followed by the Open Bar band at 7 p.m. The festival will be capped off by a spectacular fireworks display by Alonzo at 9 p.m. Fort Hardy Park is located off Route 29 east of the main traffic light at the intersection of Ferry and Broad streets. More information is available at www.turningpointparade.com.

the public. The story of Taliesin comes from a medieval Welsh tale in which the sorceress Ceridwen cooks up a potion to give her son the gift of inspiration and wisdom. By accident, the powerful elixir lands on the scruffy kid hired to stir the caldron. He is immediately enlightened, infuriating the sorceress, and he ends up using his gifts to challenge conventions at the king’s court. Taliesin is directed by Mettawee founder Ralph Lee, a native of Middlebury, Vt. The production features an original musical score by Neal Kirkwood. Founded in 1975, Mettawee River Theatre Company creates original theater productions that incorporate masks, giant figures, puppets and other visual elements with live music, drawing on legends and folklore of the world’s cultures. The company has been honored with many awards, including a 1996 New York State Governor’s Arts Award to Ralph Lee. For more information, visit www. mettawee.org.
