The New Castle Spring Fling is right around the corner scheduled for Saturday, June 14. It will run from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m., rain or shine! This year the parade will line up at New Castle Elementary School. There will be fire departments, police, floats, marchers, antique cars, antique tractors, beauty queens, ball teams, celebrities and much more! This year there will be two surprises in the parade. If you or your group want to participate in the parade please call the number below.

The Spring Fling will also have arts and crafts, flea markets, antiques, food booths and exhibits set up around the courthouse. There is still room for you or your group to set up a booth. In addition to booths, there will also be a cornhole tournament this year. Call (502) 321-5419 for information about the tournament.

There will also be live music all day and evening. There will be a street dance that night as well. There will be many different bands playing throughout the fling.

This year we will have a Tiny Tot pageant. The contestants have already pre-registered.

The committee has their cookbooks back from the publisher. We will be selling them at Spring Fling for $8 each. There are many delicious recipes from New Castle citizens and from celebrities in the cook book.

There will be several activities throughout the day including arts and crafts, flea markets, food booths, exhibits, live music, city wide yard sales, farmers market, cake walks, inflatables for children, children’s games and much more!
