When it begins to feel like Fall
That must mean...
It’s Festival time!!!
We are weathering another Western Oklahoma hot, dry summer and we are now ready for a fall cool down. That will mean October and festival time are just around the corner.
This year marks the 10th Annual Roger Miller Festival. The event will be Saturday, October 27th. We invite you to join us for a fun-filled day and experience small town hospitality. Most activities are free and there’s something for everyone.
Activities include craft booths and food vendors (both inside the Community Center and outside on the street), “King of the Road” All-Wheels Car Show and Poker Run, outstanding outdoor entertainment all day, free activities for kids, free admission to the Roger Miller Museum and the 100th Meridian Museum, the “Do-Wackiest” Crazy Hat Contest and who knows what new activity we’ll plan between now and then. All activities take place near the museum. Everything is within walking distance.
When you need a rest, please visit the Roger Miller Museum. You may sit and relax in our media room and watch Roger Miller videos. The museum board will be selling homemade pie and other goodies for your enjoyment while you are entertained by the “King of the Road”.
The festival will conclude with a concert on Saturday night at 7:00 pm at the Clifford Macklin Auditorium (approximately 6 blocks from downtown).
DEAN MILLER, singer/songwriter from Nashville, son of Roger Miller, will open the show this year.
Let’s all welcome LARRY GATLIN to the stage as our featured entertainer. Well-known for such hits as “She Used To Be Somebody’s Baby” and “Broken Lady,” Gatlin had number one hits “I Just Wish You Were Someone I Love,” “All The Gold In California” and “Houston (Means I’m One Day Closer to You)” and was awarded ACM’s Top Male Vocalist of the Year.
