We are looking forward to our 36th annual Oil Festival, “Once Upon a Time”, that will be held on October 8, 2016. The line up for the annual parade will begin at 10 a.m. and roll out at 11 a.m. Our magical Grand Marshall will be, our very own, Kathy Murphy founder of the Pulpwood Queens. Kathy will lead us out and announce our parade. IF you are interested in being in the parade, please contact the Chamber Office.
Festivities include a Baby Contest run by the Hawkins Honors Society, Car Show, a Free Kids Zone, entertainment by the Lady Cloggers and Rafael Espinoza, and food and craft booths galore. Booth can begin setting up at 8 a.m. We ask our booths be ready to roll at noon, with tear down at 4 p.m. Please come out and join us for this free family event to celebrate our city, our history, and join us in leaving a legacy.
