Rotary brings ‘Parrots’ back Aug. 21

Fins up!
The Rotary Club of Madison is hosting its eighth annual Parrots of the Caribbean, an outdoor evening of live music, food, and libations, Aug. 21 from 6 p.m. – 11 p.m. at No. 58 Martin Street in downtown Madison.
Parrotheads and music lovers everywhere are invited to don their grass skirts, Hawaiian shirts, and island wear to enjoy dancing, raffle baskets, and a fabulous island theme all to be found right in downtown Madison. In its eighth year, this fundraising event has grown from a small gathering of Madison Rotarians in a community clubhouse to a spectacular event attended by more than 500 guests from all over the Southeast. This year’s musical guest is Four on the Floor, playing an eclectic blend of music from the golden ages of rock and roll (50s – 80s).
Also, joining the party is Curtis Jordan. Jordan will have you swaying to the sounds of the Caribbean from your first step through the gates.
The smell of ribs will “whet” your appetite, with beverages including soft drinks, beer and wine available for purchase as well. All guests must be 21 or older and are encouraged to bring their IDs, blankets, and lawn chairs. Coolers, pets, strollers, and outside food and drink are not permitted. This event is held rain or shine.
Tickets are $15 in advance and $20 the night of the event and can be purchased from Madison Rotarians or online (http://madisonalrotary.org/parrots) with an additional online ticketing service charge of $2.28 per ticket. Tickets can also be purchased over the phone using a credit card starting one month prior to the event. Call 256-564-2075 and leave your call back number.
All proceeds from this event will benefit the Madison Rotary Club’s local community and international projects such as, the Madison YMCA, Boys and Girls Club of Triana, world-wide polio eradication, humanitarian support in Honduras and Haiti, and various other local and international educational projects.
