Dunking Donuts

I hope to have a dunking donuts eating contest for the Red Skelton Festival June 14th. There is still some details to deal with. Red was famous for this skit. This is from the film "Having Wonderful Time".

Street named after Red Skelton.

(Vincennes Sun-Commercial May 15, 2008) Staff photo by Gayle R. Robbins: Rusty McGregor with the city street department puts up the last of the new Red Skelton Boulevard signs on what used to be Portland Avenue. The city council last month approved a request from Vincennes University to rename the street, which runs in front of the Red Skelton Performing Arts Center, 20 Red Skelton Blvd.. The center will be the site of this year’s Red Skelton Gala on June 14. Grammy-winning performer Crystal Gayle will headline the event. For ticket information call the center’s box office at 812-888-4039, or go on-line at
