Area communities set holiday plans


Woodward, Okla. — VICI

The Vici Lion's Club will mark a milestone with its 2013 Independence Day Celebration, as this will be the 35th year for the club to hold the event.

Activities will begin at 6 p.m. with a flag ceremony.

Then the fun and games will start with a horseshoe tournament and a variety of kids games, including turtle races, bicycle races, baby crawl, foot races, sack and three-legged races, and an egg toss.  Adults can even join in with some of these activities, including the sack races.

For those 13-years-old and over, there will also be a "marathon race," where they must complete a series of challenges from pushing a partner in a wheelchair to donning a firefighting uniform, according to Erica Morris with The Vici Vision.

The games will then end with the big tug-o-war competitions, where the Vici volunteer firemen will be on hand to soak the losers.

Then once it's dark enough, all the lights at the field will be turned off, so that families can enjoy the Lion's Club's traditional fireworks display.
