Farrar To Announce Celebration Morning Classes



 

 

            SHELBYVILLE, Tenn. – Mark Farrar, Jr. will announce the morning classes at the 2007 Tennessee Walking Horse National Celebration®, according to Celebration CEO Ron Thomas.

            Farrar, a native and resident of Flat Creek, TN, is no stranger to the action at Calsonic Arena.  He has been the primary announcer for The National Trainers’ Show for many years.

            In addition to the Trainers’ Show, Farrar’s credits also include the Big D Charity Horse Show, Germantown Charity Horse Show, San Diego Charity Fair Horse Show, International Grand Championships, and the Morgan Grand Nationals and World Championship Horse Show.

            "In my opinion, The Celebration® sets the standard for which all other shows are measured,” said Farrar.  “It's a real honor to be associated with The Celebration® and to be a part of their team.”

            Farrar will call the action during the five days of competition at Calsonic Arena while Director of Public and Media Relations Chip Walters will be in his sixth year as the lead announcer in the main arena for the ten nights of the show.

            “Mark is a talented young man that understands The Celebration® and our industry.  He will put a great deal of effort into making the event special for the exhibitors,” said Walters. “Mark is very aware of how we do business and knows what The Celebration® audience expects.  Mark is one of the most professional and well-liked announcers in our industry.  We’re very fortunate to have him announcing our morning classes.”

            The 69th Celebration is just over one month away. Classes begin on Wednesday, August 22 and run through Saturday, September 1.
