Frontier Days in Beggs
Melissa Heminover, Reporter
Vendors, Kids Zone, Car Show, Rodeo...something for everyone is slated for this year's Beggs Area Chamber of Commerce Frontier Days happening tomorrow, June 19.
According to Beggs Area Chamber of Commerce Publicity Chair, Ali Gobel, “There is so much happening at this year's event. We are ready for everyone to come out and enjoy Frontier Days with us.”
There will be a “Kid Zone” promising a 75 foot obstacle course and bounce house.
“The entire town has been working so hard to make sure everything is ready for this event,” Goebel said.
In addition to the downtown events, the Beggs Alumni Association also has their festivities planned including a dinner Saturday evening.
The Beggs Round-Up Club is hosting their Annual Rice Brother's Memorial Open Rodeo as well. The rodeo is scheduled for Friday and Saturday nights with sheep riding kicking off at 7 p.m. and the rodeo at 8 p.m. nightly.
All downtown events will be taking place along Main Street near Legacy Park including a BBQ competition with awards for people's choice as well as a first place price from the panel of judges. A cookie bake off competition will also see prizes going to the fan favorite and a first place nod from the competition's judges. Competitors can visit the Beggs Area Chamber of Commerce Facebook page for entry details.
