Over 1,000 people showed up to the MPEC to check out the Big Boy Toy Show. The C&S Fun Center was the sole sponsor, but there were also 30 other Texoma vendors looking to show off the latest and greatest gear and gadgets. Many people said they were excited to get inside and check the show out.

"We came to look at the toys, that's all. He's been wanting to come for weeks. That's all he talked about, so that's why we're here," said Debra Atnip.

"Saw this advertisement on TV and I've been wanting a four wheeler because I can't walk well. So I need an SUV or all terrain vehicle to get around at the farm," said Howard Atnip.

The Atnips and anyone else that entered had a chance to win a Yamaha Big Bear 400 from the C&S Fun Center. Salesmen, Johnny Rodgers said that C&S had seen a lot of success selling at todays event.

"We sell everything from Yamaha, K&M, HEV, side-by-side, and watercraft. Like I said farm use, playing in the mud, playing in the sand and everything," said Rodgers.

The event was for more than just local businesses, the Wichita County Sheriffs office was there raising money and even trying to recruit for the opening of the Allred Jail.

"We usually try to come out to these community events and get to know the community, let the community get to know the Sheriff's Office.

That way, if someone is interested in law enforcement as a job or just getting to know their Sherriffs Office then we're here to answer any questions and hand out applications if they want to apply," said Brien Conner of the Wichita County Sheriffs office.

The Big Boy Toy show ended at 5:30 Saturday. Everyone left with a smile.
