This year marks our 25th Anniversary!

   Last year we had an estimated 6,000 people of all ages attend the 2-day Festival held in the beautiful Paola Park Square. We are pleased to have provided a fun and entertaining event for our community. Just a sample of last year’s festival highlights include, a wide variety of live music featuring "Robert Randolph & the Family Band", "Average White Band", "Cody Canada & the Departed" and "Ronnie Baker Brooks”.
   Other great festival attractions included ethnic dancers, arts & crafts, food vendors, a State Championship BBQ Cook-off and for our younger festival goers, great games, fun rides and a creative sidewalk chalk contest!
   Price to get into the festival is $15 per person per day rain or shine! Kids 10 and under get in free. Tickets available at the gates. Tickets are not available online.
   Save money and avoid lines at the gate with an Advance 2-Day Pass available at all First Option Bank locations on sale July 1 through August 22 -- $25 per person.
