The festival opens up at 11 Saturday morning and runs until 7 pm at 9th and Ohio. Proceeds will go towards downtown development projects. 

Insane Acres:

Halloween is getting closer and that means the ghosts and goblins are starting to pop up all across Texoma. Wicked Andy's is putting on Insane Acres.
