There's Plenty of Music Scheduled

It's not one of those festivals that has just a band at the end that you have to wait around for. They kick things off early and keep it going all day. There's no shortage of acts including Cooder Graw who list the show as the only one on their site and were at Hodgetown earlier this year. There is no doubt they are supporting their new album and single "Love to Live By." Zac Wilkerson brings a soulful vocal style with driving guitar riffs to the stage. Among the other acts, Travis Roberts, Velvet Funk and the Michael D. Coon Band round out the lineup with Ed Montana as the master of ceremonies

Food and Vendors a plenty

The Corner of Cuyler and Foster in Downtown Pampa will also be full of vendors. Festival organizers expect at least 80 unique vendors with 10 food trucks on site promise something for everyone. For the kids, story time events, facepainting and chalk art promise a little extra fun.
