Nocona's Fun Fest On Armed Services Day

Fun Fest in Nocona is a great place for families to have a lot fun. Downtown streets are packed with vendors and activities for all ages. Those who come out can't help but notice characters dressed in cowboy gear back from the 1800's.

This year is especially exciting as Fun Fest, May 19 is on Armed Forces Day. This gives Nocona an additional way of celebrating and honoring our military hero's.

The Motorcycle Poker Rally,sponsored by the VFW Post 8558 promises to be the biggest in years. The first 70 entries will receive ride pins and proceeds will go to the VFW Scholarship Fund.
Additionally, do we have a car show for you this year! Registration on day of show will be at Horton's Car Dealership on E.Elm Street The first 70 entries will receive a welcome package and T-Shirt. The building has been completely renovated and is great to visit. Winners will be announced at the Awards Dinner and Banquet.

"A lot of people are involved in different events but whether it's the poker run, the car show, eating great vendor foods, enjoying arts and crafts or something else there's a lot of things to do for the kids. The bounce house and rock climbing wall are just two of the events for the kids to have a great day. It helps bring the community together and helps promote the downtown area to tourist who might not otherwise have come to Nocona," President of the Chamber of Commerce, Patty Fenoglio said.

This is the 16th annual event and helps bring fun and funding into the local economy. Vendors open at 9 a.m. All local business in Nocona are open for Fun Fest and appreciate your patronage as well.

To end the evening in the best possible tribute to our military, there will be a dance at the VFW featuring Scotty Thurman. Don't miss all the fun in Nocona on Saturday.
