April 12, 2018 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee 1 Special to The Sun BELLE GLADE Torry Island Recreation Center and campground, 5000 W. Canal St. North, Belle Glade, will be the site of the Black Gold Jubilee on April 14, starting at noon. The annual festival celebrates the harvest. The entire Glades region of Belle Glade, Pahokee, South Bay and Canal Point comes together to celebrate the annual jubilees. Belle Glades annual Black Gold Jubilee is a much-anticipated festival born from the 1976 Bicentennial celebration which was sponsored by the City of Belle Glade in commemoration of our great nations 200th birthday. The year following that memorable celebration, a group of citizens organized a similar festival hoping to imitate its success; however, the focus of the celebration would shift to the areas rich soil, nicknamed Black Gold for its ability to produce bountiful harvests year after year. In 1978, the rst of cial Black Gold Jubilee kicked off in McDonald Park, next to the Belle Glade Branch Library. Since that time, the Jubilee has grown to be the best-attended festival in the area, drawing several thousand residents and visitors from across South Florida. The jubilee is preceded by multiple events, including the Little Miss Black Gold Pageant, Childrens Fishing Contest and the Harvest Queen Pageant. On the morning of the jubilee, the festivities begin with a 5K Walk/Run and a 10K Run on Torry Island, followed by the Main Street Parade. After the parade, everyone heads out to Torry Island for a full day of fun, food and entertainment. The variety of food ranges from Greek to Cajun, and from downhome barbecue to soul food. The child-friendly atmosphere brings families out for a day of free games and kids rides while the adults enjoy music under a covered stage as well as a wide variety of vendors wares. In the evening, activities move to the amphitheater stage for an evening of musical entertainment followed by the grand nale a spectacular reworks display over the lake. The highlight of the 2018 festival will be free concerts by Joe Dif e, who will perform at 7:30 p.m., and 7 Bridges, who will perform at 5:30 p.m. Joe Dif e is a Grammy and ACM Award winner. He is a member of the Oklahoma Music Hall of Fame and has been a member of the Grand Ole Opry for over 20 years.
