Ready or not Folks, it's here! It's July so that means it is SUMMERFEST MONTH! We have been waiting two years to bring you this jam packed, family fun filled weekend on July 15th through the 18th! Check out the entire Summerfest Schedule here.
Thursday we will have the duck hunt, Pull Over and Pork lunch and a concert at the community center featuring Paul Siebert, a vocalist, storyteller and instrumentalist. The KBRX Cruise Night and the DQ Parking Lot Party have been moved to Thursday night this year due to all the activities happening on Saturday night.
Friday , the art show will open at the library, sponsored by Roger Sorensen at H&R Block, and you won't have to cook lunch on this day either! Sargent Insurance will have hot dogs and root beer floats during lunch time! Stop by and grab one! The first performance of the 36th Annual Summerfest Rodeo will be Friday evening.
Saturday, we will be doing all of the activities in Ford park including the car show, vendor fair, turtle races, wooden nickel toss, youth tractor pull, free swimming and new this year, a cake walk! It is time to introduce our younger generation to an old fashioned cake walk! Bring them to the gazebo starting at 11am and have them join me in trying to win a cake! I love cake walks, so I will be there doing my best to win one thanks to the O'Neill Chapter PEO. Sidewalk Sales will be going on in downtown O'Neill on Saturday starting at 9am. There will be huge sales and discounts out on the sidewalk and also inside the businesses. Saturday night will be our big night with the rodeo performance starting at 6:30pm. Gates will open at 8pm for the concert with Dane Louis at 9 opening for Casey Donahew. Tickets for the rodeo and concert are on sale at the Chamber Office and KBRX Radio Station. More sites for rodeo ticket sales will be added. Check out the schedule! More could be added by celebration time. This also means we are going to be needing lots of volunteers to make everything happen.
