Jubilee Cityfest Announces Changes

The following is a news release from Jubilee Cityfest.

Montgomery, AL – Jubilee CityFest, Alabama's premier family festival is excited to announce the festival will be held Memorial Day weekend 2010. 

Over the past six months, Jubilee CityFest officials have sought input from community leaders, community groups and the public at large. The outcome of these meetings is a Jubilee CityFest expanding to a citywide event. This year's Jubilee CityFest will be the host to the first ever Fish in' Chix freshwater fishing tournament. The festival will also continue to have popular events such as ArtsFest, KidsFest, TeenFest, the Jubilee Run, Montgomery Symphony Pops concert, music at the Amphitheatre/Train shed and much more. "We are excited to host the first ever Fishin' Chix freshwater fishing tournament," said Ray White, 2010 Jubilee Chairman. "This gives us the opportunity to reach new audiences and attract particip ates and patrons from across the Southeast. We are also eager to see the fun and enthusiasm the Fishin' Chix and their fans will bring to the festival."

The Fishin' Chix was founded by Claudia Espenscheid a little over 3 years ago when several hurricanes hit the gulf coast. Claudia got away from the stress after the hurricanes by fishing from her pier. The goal was to allow women the opportunity to learn and enjoy fishing . Today, the Fishin' Chix has more than 800 members that represent 14 states. "Fishin' Chix was created to be a stylish deep-sea fishing opportunity for women," said Claudia Espenscheid, CEO/President o f Fishin' Chix. "Our events represent a sisterhood of women who want to >> get outside, enjoy nature while learning to fish and having a good time. To be able to kick off our fresh water tournaments in Montgomery as part of Jubilee CityFest is exhilarating."

Be sure to make your family plans to vacation Memorial Day weekend in Montgomery, AL at Jubilee. To keep up with the news and updates on the festival, visit our website at www.jubileecityfest.org.
