Festival will have bands, truck pulls

Local music, a talent show and truck and tractor pulls mark the beginning of Dillinger Days in Daleville.

The five-day festival, which runs from Wednesday to Sunday, will raise money for the Salem Township Volunteer Fire Department.

For the 19th year, the John Dillinger Bank Robbery Run Car Show is coming to Daleville. The fire department organized a truck and tractor pull to coincide with the car show during the past five years, but this year the fire department decided to expand it into a five-day event, calling it Dillinger Days, said Jason Murphy, one of the organizers of the festival.

“We’re trying to give the community a better activity and something to do,” Murphy said. “Hopefully next year we’ll have a full-fledged fair.”

All of the events are sponsored by donations from local businesses.

Amanda Luce, 21, who is in charge of sponsors for the festival, said 23 businesses are sponsoring the festival.

“We’re always looking for sponsors,” she said.

The days kick off with a local band concert, starting at 6:30 p.m. at Daleville High School.

Bands featured in the concert include Hot Air Rising from Franklin, Where Jackson Meets Tally from Muncie and Billy Lee and the Silver Buckle Band from all over Indiana. Another band, Runner Up, was scheduled to play, but had to drop out.

Kasie Mumford, 18, who is in charge of the entertainment for the night, said she was working on getting a third band to join the concert.

The concert will cost $3 for admission, and drinks will be sold during the event.

“Definitely come out, support the station,” Mumford said. “It’s going to be a good time.”

A Daleville Idol, similar to an American Idol from the television show, will be named on the second night during a talent competition. Murphy said people can register to participate in the competition at the festival. It will be separated into five age groups and people of any age can participate, although children under 18 years old need a parent signature to compete.
