Blues Concert set Saturday night

Woodward, Okla. — Looking for something new, different and free to do on Saturday night?

Then Mayor Roscoe Hill wants to invite you to the 4th annual Mayor's Blues Festival at Crystal Beach Park from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. on Saturday, Aug. 25.

The mayor said he is glad to be a part of the blues concert because it provides something special for the whole community to enjoy.

"There is hardly anything like this in Northwest Oklahoma and I know there is a lot of people looking for something different to do," Hill said.

He noted that the annual summer concert seems to gain in popularity each year.

"Seems like the crowd gets bigger each year and the bands get better, too," Hill said.

The bands that will be playing this year include the Roland Bowling Band and Mikel Daggett and the Bloodwashed Blues Band.

"I'm more of a classic country-western type a guy, but I did really like the Roland Bowling Band last year and I'm glad they are back this year," Hill said.

According to Debbie Hickman of the Woodward Convention and Visitors Bureau (CVB), this event is put on by the CVB, Dairy Queen, Woodward Main Street and the Woodward Chamber of Commerce.

"We have been doing this for the last 4 years as a way to honor the Mayor," Hickman said.

Dairy Queen will have a full concession stand, plus BBQ brisket, available during the concert.  

Plus the Dilly Truck will be on hand with all of your frozen favorites.

"We ask that everyone bring their lawn chairs and join us for a great night of blues and community fun," Hickman said.
