The event also features a Grand Oil and Gas Trophy Parade, art shows and exhibits, quality regional crafts, a wide variety of food vendors, musical entertainment and an amateur talent contest.
An annual antique gas engine auction and exhibits, oil field themed contests, an annual Band-O-Rama competition and an antique and hot rod & custom car show.
