KINGSPORTKeep Kingsport Beautiful and sponsor AEP Appalachian Power are looking for volunteers to serve as Trashbusters during Fun Fest, July 11-19.

Want to receive free admission to Mercy Me, Train or Martina McBride Fun Fest concerts?  Want to receive a FREE Fun Fest t-shirt?  If the answers are yes, then sign up to be a Fun Fest Trashbuster!  In order to receive free admission to one of the Sunset Concert Series shows, you need to work two events, one being the concert of your choice.

KKB, Fun Fest, the City of Kingsport and AEP are pleased to announce a Focus on Recycling during Fun Fest 2014. Blue recycling bins will be placed adjacent to trash barrels at Mardi Gras and The Taste in Memorial Park. These bins will accept plastic drink bottles and cans. All bard containers and wrappers should be placed in the trash barrels.

Trashbusters are dedicated volunteers who patrol the festival areas setting a good example for everyone attending by pointing out recycling bins and trash barrels and encouraging Fun Festers to be responsible for their own trash to ensure that Fun Fest remains a litter free event!! Volunteers receive a FREE Fun Fest T-shirt!!!

KKB and Fun Fest are looking for individuals, families, church groups, civic clubs, and business/employee groups to serve as Trashbusters July 11-19.  Trashbusters are also an excellent opportunity for area teens to earn community service hours towards TN/VA Scholars requirements.

Trashbuster event schedules and registration forms can be picked up at the Fun Fest Store, 400 Clinchfield Street in the Kingsport Chamber of Commerce building, at FunFest.net and KeepKingsportBeautiful.com.
