The 2017 Popcorn Festival Committee is working hard planning the 2017 Festival.  It really is just around the corner!

We are excited to announce that the chicken BBQ is coming back this year! Mason District Hospital is the sponsor and the travel baseball team and parents will cook.

There will be a new event this year at the dance Friday night – a PHOTO BOOTH!  Free pictures for each attending to take home!

NEW THIS YEAR:  KNOCKERBALLS!  Sunday September 3 from 1:00-3:00 p.m.

Once again this year there will be Inflatables to play in, ponies to ride, animals to pet, games to be played, races to run, tractors to pull, crafts to buy, bands to listen to, a whole lot of food to eat, baskets to bid on, and so much more!

Lee Haw will be returning for a performance Saturday afternoon and West McQueen Street Band will entertain Sunday.

Besides the many hours of planning by community volunteers it takes a surprising amount of money to put the Popcorn Festival together. It has been our goal to make as many activities such as the pony rides, inflatables, entertainment, and the petting zoo free to the families of our community.  The only way to do that is by donations from generous benefactors .

We are still looking for someone to do a meal in the park on Sunday.  Anyone interested please contact a member of the committee.

If you are able to help sponsor an event in full or in part, please send your donation directly to:

We hope to see you in the park for a fun filled weekend!
