Charlie Adams Day Saturday

The Main Street Mavericks will perform twice on Charlie Adams Day.


 Charlie Adams Day is Saturday and the day’s festivities will provide fun for the entire family.

 This year Charlie Adams Day has thirteen teams providing world class BBQ at a cost of $7 per person.

 BBQ teams are judged and awards will be presented at 2:45 p.m.

 Hamburgers and hot dogs will also be available but are sold separately.

 Desserts will be provided by Heartland of the Prairies Dutch Oven Society - these are free as part of a matching grant from Oklahoma Humanities Council. Many of the Dutch oven participants are award winning teams who have competed nation-wide.

 Thanks to grants from the Oklahoma Humanities Council and the Oklahoma Arts Council, the past becomes the present as storyteller Maggi Hutchason will bring to life the pioneers of women’s basketball in Newkirk.

 At 10:30 a.m. and 1:30 p.m.,   The Main Street Mavericks will take you back to the way the early settlers resolved conflict.  The  Mavericks are made up of local talent and dancers from Arkansas City.

 The Classic Car Show and Poker Run are on tap for car and cycle enthusiasts.
