Turkey Fest trots inside for potential weather

Local News

The 13th annual Turkey Fest over in Henrietta is making some changes due to the weather by moving inside.

The festival that’s supposed to start at 10 a.m. Saturday in the square will now be inside of Pioneer Hall at the Rodeo Grounds.

The cookout will be in the Bryant Edwards building right next door.

Even though the event is moved inside, there will still be fun for the whole family including vendors, bounce houses, a mechanical bull, face painting, food trucks, and there will be a Paul Bunyan Lumberjack show for the first time.

Despite the rainy weather putting a damper on the fun outside, organizers are keeping their optimism alive.

“There’s a lot of hard work that goes into planning this event, so we’re still trying to make the best of it the best as we can,” Clay County Chamber of Commerce president Payton Cantrell said.

The festival ends at 4 p.m. on Saturday and is followed by the Full Strut Banquet.

Tickets are still available for purchase at the event for $50 and click here for more information on the Chamber of Commerce information.
