Moulton residents were more than ready to celebrate their annual Jamboree this year after having to cancel last year’s celebration due to COVID.
The theme for this year’s celebration was “Coming Together at the Moulton Jamboree,” and come together was what the community did for the Sept. 9-11 event.
Committee member Andie Lawson said, “It was so nice to ‘Come Together at the Moulton Jamboree.’ We were blessed with beautiful weather, great food, fun activities, and a fantastic parade.
“COVID has definitely put a damper on the event after canceling last year and facing the threat of increased cases this year. However, we’re determined to get back into the swing of things and plan for an even better celebration in 2022.”
The crowning of Jamboree royalty and the Saturday parade were major events in the three-day celebration. Results of those contests follow:
