Will Dailey, Honky Tonk Heroes Headline Fifth Annual
Ladysmith Day Set for May 4
Free entertainment, petting zoo, pony rides, plus food, crafts
and the Ladymsith Volunteer Fire Department Car Show

There will be something for everyone at the “Fifth Annual Ladysmith Day” celebration Saturday, May 14, along Library Boulevard at Clara Smith Street.

The fun gets underway in Ladysmith Village on the Village Green, opposite the Caroline County’s Ladysmith Library, which will be transformed into a festival from 11 a.m. until 4 p.m. with craft and food vendors as well as the Ladysmith Volunteer Fire Department Classic Car Show and the Virginia Sports Park hosting a corn hole tournament.

There will be food from cheese steaks and hot dogs to smoothies and kettle corn.

This year the event will feature two very popular music artists.
Will Dailey is an acclaimed recording and performing artist, who is a three-time winner of the Boston Music Award for Best Singer/Songwriter. He has released two full-length through CBS Records and one on Universal Republic. His music has been featured on over 50 TV programs and films. He has appeared on stage with Neil Young, Dave Matthews, Willie Nelson and John Mellencamp at two of their philanthropic Farm Aid concerts, Dailey is currently in the studio recording his new album.

Honky Tonk Heroes appeal to all age groups, playing classic and contemporary country and have opened for Willie Nelson, Luke Bryan, Darius Rucker, Chris Young and David Allan Coe. We’re talking about a two-hands-on-the-steering-whee l, pedal-to-the-metal country party band.

The great thing about Ladysmith Day is it’s free! There’s no admission to the event. It’s full day of fun for families from across Caroline and neighboring counties. Families will find entertainment from a moon bounce, pony rides to a petting zoo.

The Caroline County Sheriff’s Office, Ladysmith Volunteer Fire Department and the Ladysmith Rescue Squad will be on hand with the latest equipment and available to answer any questions.

Come out with your neighbors, even meet new friends at the Fifth Annual Ladysmith Day along Library Boulevard, Saturday, May 4, 11 a.m. until 4 p.m.

nice turnout for the Ladysmith Day, but the stand that was selling the steak and cheese subs for $8.00 and Fries for $5.00 is a rip off, please dont invite them back next year, there area was filthy, the grill was a mess, the guy cooking the food was a jerk, the cashier lady tried to rip me off...Please dont allow them to come back next year, all the food was way over priced.

Maybe they need to start charging so they can pay at least a little of the $5 million bill for the YMCA the county is building for Ladysmith Village.....No, wait! The cost is up to $7 million and still climbing....

.....but one thing you can count on is Ladysmith Village will always have their hand out, demanding more and more --- they are insatiable!

FYI, most people I have met from Ladysmith Village either don't care about the YMCA, or are against it, so I wouldn't blame them for that mess. The two are really unrelated. And ladysmith day isn't run by Ladysmith Village or the YMCA, so what you are saying doesn't really make sense.

why dont the people in the village repair the homes that are peeling paint from te trim work. Most of them that dont have aluminum trim are starting to look bad.Houses like that should be kept in better condition.

Pretty stupid to put a YMCA so close to a health and fitness center with a big pool. They could have saved a lot of money and made a profit selling health club memberships to people living outside LV because no one uses their facilities anyway.

So the question needs to be asked and answered by the politicians who voted for this why they put it there.

It was a political move with some sort of political payoff.

It must be a big payoff for the politicians behind it to go and spend millions of dollars on a YMCA and not falling down schools or more pressing needs.

The politicians behind it must have gotten quite a payoff when they was for it even though most of the people were against it.

The payoff must have made them politicians heart sing like "Wild Thing" when they was willing to mortgage a school of all things to build a Y.

So what politicians pushed it the most?
Which one led the way and which ones was so stupid as to go along for the ride? Who is getting the political payoff here?

"It must be a big payoff for the politicians behind it to go and spend millions of dollars on a YMCA and not falling down schools or more pressing needs."

In the same vote as approving the YMCA, they agreed to spend twice as much on an Elementary School in Bowling Green, as well as a new Ambulance.

And have you seen the "fitness center" at ladysmithvillage? It's really, really small. The pool is oversized though.

Really, they could have renovated the old Ladysmith Elementary into something like a YMCA, and had the parks-and-rec department run it. It has a gym, you could throw exercise equipment in the old lunch room, and fix up the park (has a football/soccer field with lights and track, a playground, and softball field. It's just run down) That whole site seems to be unused now, just sitting there. This way, it would be free to use for all residents... not just those who can afford a $85/month membership!

Telephone, the plan is to tear down the old school and build a new one that will be needed in about 5-10 years.

Bar Nun, the 5th Annual Ladysmith Day was all privately funded. No county funds were involved. If we charged admission, it affects the turnout as well as costs for security.
