For the first time in its 108-year history, the Washington Parish Fair will be open on Sunday and will feature a full afternoon of fun and entertainment.

On Wednesday, Oct. 16, the Main Stage will spotlight The Baker Family followed by The Isaacs, and the stage committee has a two awesome acts scheduled to close out the final hours of the fair. Louisiana’s own Clifton Brown and the Rusty Bucket Band will perform at 1 p.m.

Brown and his bandmates are not a typical new day country band; they are country! They play chart-topping country songs from the 80s, 90s, and 2000s, from Nashville’s biggest artists, as well as their very own originals. They have opened for some of Nashville’s biggest artists and bring professionalism to a new level earning the prestigious honor to back some of these same country stars.

The band is made up of six of South Louisiana’s finest musicians and can be found performing most any weekend at venues including rodeos, fairs, festivals, casinos, night clubs and/or private events. Brown’s motto is “Keeping it COUNTRY, one song and one event at a time.”

The final act of the 2019 fair will be the popular, premier 80s tribute band, The Molly Ringwalds.

Those who have seen them know that The Molly Ringwalds take every stage they step on with force. Deriving their name from popular 80s actress Molly Ringwald, the group has been playing classic 80s rock and pop hits to nostalgic fans and a new generation as well.

The group believes that regardless of the time period there are some things about 80s pop culture and music that still resonate with people today. They dazzle and engage their audiences with energy and passion, while taking them on a musical journey filled with all the hits that transcended the 80s and defined a generation.

Music videos of the iconic songs are the backdrop to a stage that comes to life with a captivating light show and a movable set that draws every single person into the moment.

Their show is loaded with the visual enormity and glam that encompassed the essence of the decade’s music scene. No one will want to go home early on the first ever Sunday edition of the Washington Parish Free Fair.
