Just A Great Day

The kick-off BBQ begins at 10:30am on Friday, May 20th at the Chamber offices on Beech Street.  Visitors can also get a look at the new Tesla, Fast-Charge stations directly south of the train engine which were recently installed and check out the vendor’s booths or sample some food offerings later that day.

Release the Fowl!!

The annual No-booze Cruise welcomes all drivers to get in line Friday evening at Sonic Drive-In by 6pm for the fund-raising, hot-rod cruise around town.  Proceeds help fund the Lamar Fire Department’s annual July 4th fireworks display.  There’ll be entertainment downtown that evening with the chamber’s beer garden from 6-10pm, a DJ will be spinning the discs for the street dance and a cornhole tournament will be underway. Sidewalk sales will be held through the day.
