Annual Farm Expo set to open Friday

This weekend K-101 is hosting its annual Farm Expo at the Woodward County Fairgrounds. This will be the 30th anniversary for the Expo and organizers are expecting quite a turnout.

“This year we're just about sold out,” said Shawn Miller, show director.

Hours are 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. on Friday, 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. on Saturday and noon to 6 p.m. on Sunday.

Miller said the ongoing construction at the fairgrounds will not affect exhibits at the show.

“The construction out there is not going to affect outside exhibits,” says Miller.

The only effect the construction will have may be on parking. Parking will be available to the north and east of the Expo and possibly along 1st Street.

There are booths that should interest just about anyone.

“This show probably has more variety than we have ever had,” Miller said. “I can't see going through there and not finding something that you gotta have.”

There are a number of interesting exhibitors like Last Glue with their specialty permanent adhesive which sold out the last time, Miller said.

Also, Ghost Town Leathers from Weatherford will be located in the Arts and Crafts building along with S&J Pottery which will be featuring somebody on a pottery wheel creating items there at the event. Outlaw Power Sports is coming in from Tulsa, and there will also be four different wineries. Alabaster Caverns has 2 booths and will be showing different animals, including rattlesnakes behind protective glass.

There are many more exhibits other than those listed, as well as a variety of foods like salsa, Dipping' Dots, and homemade fudge. The helicopter rides will also be there operated by DWT Air from Wichita, Miller said.

There is going to be the fair-like midway with places to purchase items and foods. Children's activities will also be available including inflatable jump houses and pony rides. There is also a mechanical bull and a rock wall to climb.

The Oklahoma Blood Institute whale its bloodmobile at the Expo to accept donations on Friday and Saturday. Hours for donations on Friday are 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. and on Saturday, noon to 6 p.m.

“I just invite everybody out to have a good time,” says Miller.

There is no charge to attend the Farm Expo.
