Blue Jacket Jamboree Is Today; Includes Easter Egg Drop For Kids

April 1, 2017

The Northview High School FFA Blue Jacket Jamboree is today at the Escambia County 4-H Facility in Molino with events including a giant Easter Egg Drop.

The event will be held from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m. with plenty of arts and crafts, a car show, a tractor show and more. An Egg Drop will be held at noon, with over 2,000 Easter eggs dropped from a ladder fire truck for children to hunt for free.

The Blue Jacket Jamboree is held in conjunction with the Gulf Coast Agriculture & Natural Resources Youth Organization Annual Spring Livestock Show. This year’s show begins at 8 a.m. with over fifty 4-H and FFA youth exhibiting hogs, beef cattle, sheep, goats, poultry, and rabbits from Escambia and neighboring counties. The day will conclude with youth exhibitors auctioning off their market animals beginning at 5 p.m. The event is open to the public and there is no charge to attend.

Both events are held at the 4-H Facility at 5701 Highway 99, near Chalker Road in Molino. (Note that Molino Road is closed for bridge constructions. Drivers should access the 4-H Facility from Barrineau Park Road to the south, or Crabtree Church Road to the north.)

    >>William, can you link a map for directions

    This maps to Hwy 99 & Chalker Road in Molino; it is just a few yards north of here:

    Keep in mind Molino Road is closed for bridge replacement between Hwy 29 & Hwy 99, so you can’t use Molino Road to get across from 29. User Barrineau Park Road to the south or Crabtree Church Road to the north.
