The 14th annual Marble City Mayhem and Fireworks Show includes a Speed Challenge
up Marble City hill on June 30.
June 30 is a happening time in Sequoyah County, with Marble City Mayhem just one of the events planned.
The 14th annual Marble City Mayhem and Fireworks Show is a family-oriented fundraising event featuring a veterans’ military ceremony, food, live music, kids’ games, inflatables for the kids, face painting, and a free fireworks show sponsored by St. Clair/US Lime.
The Car Show and Speed Challenge is back by popular demand and is an event like none other in the county. Beginning at the stop sign in downtown Marble City, drivers and vehicles registered for the event will accelerate up the Marble City hill for about one-eighth of a mile. The police chief will clock the vehicle and radio the speed back to the master of ceremonies at the bottom of the hill.
The speed to beat is 116 miles per hour!
The winners will be crowned Top Speeders!
The veterans’ military ceremony will open the festivities at 9:30 a.m.
Other events include a horseshoe tournament starting at 12:30 p.m., and a performance by Matt Garland and Shotgun Reunion from 7 to 9 p.m.
The free fireworks show will conclude the festival at dark, or about 9:15 p.m.
