Muldrow’s Old Settlers Day will be held from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m. Oct. 6 at the city park.
The festival includes all kinds of foods, crafts and games for the kids. The Muldrow Lions Club sponsors the Old Settlers Day each year in October and uses the money raised for the Muldrow Christmas parade and Easter egg hunt and for other projects, such as purchasing eye glasses for those who qualify.
Catherine Jones is treasurer of the Muldrow Lions Club.
She said festivities will run from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m., and about 50 vendors are expected. The many food vendors always include the Muldrow Friends of the Library popular caramel popcorn which sells out as fast as it can be popped. The popcorn always sells out quick. So buy early.
Also expected are Indian tacos, hamburgers and hot dogs, chicken strips, fish, barbeque and home-made baked goods.
The entertainment begins at 10 a.m. as members of the Muldrow Veterans of Foreign Wars raise the flag, and continues throughout the day. The groups performing at the park pavilion include school choirs and a women’s exercise line. Tad Rhodes is expected to continue in his role as the master of ceremonies. He is in charge of the entertainment, and sometimes invites festival goers to join him on stage to perform.
In addition to the playground equipment already at the park for the youngsters, bounce arounds and children’s games will also be available for their enjoyment as well.
Adults may also grab a ticket for a turkey drop giveaway to be held during the day. The tickets are $5 for a chance to win $1,000. The turkey drop will start at 3 p.m., Jones said.
“And of course the politicians will be here too,” Jones said.
She added, “It all hinges on the weather. Cool weather would be great. We’ve been blessed with good weather every year.”
Jones said, “We’d like for everybody to come out and join us.”
