Frontier Days 2019 Booths and Entertainment
This year we had a fantastic variety of entertainment and merchandise booths to accompany the traditional carnival and contests of Frontier Days.
Regarding entertainment, David G. Wonders, the magician, put on a magic show for all the children present; and following his show, he made various animals and objects from balloons for the children to wear and play with.
Another form of entertainment was the famous Outlaws performing their ever-popular gun-fighter show complete with stage props, western costumes, and authentic firearm discharges (Only blank rounds were shot). Mrs. Daniels performed a puppet show onstage that captivated the youth. The Timpson twirlers and cheerleaders performed, and then the cake auction was held. This year there was a whopping 21 cakes up for auction. With the help of Curtis Daniels serving as auctioneer, a grand total of $16,100 was raised to finance the Frontier Days event for the next year, with $3,000 set aside for Timpson ISD college scholarships. Following the cake auction, Jeremy Bowley and Legal Limit kicked off the night’s dancing with an onstage performance.
The vendor booths supplied wares for most every interest. The Timpson Volunteer Fire Department operated a rifle booth that was selling raffle tickets, as well as BBQ sandwich plates and turkey legs.
Churches were involved in food merchandise booths with wares available for purchase, too. The Faith Assembly of God had a booth selling fried pies and soft peanut brittle to raise money for their Mission trips to Guatemala. The Timpson 1st Assembly of God used their booth for a youth bake sale.
Erin Hollis, volunteer coordinator for the Deep East Texas Council of Governments was accepting donations for her council. She was selling understandably-popular cold water bottles for the extremely generous price of $.50.
Courtney Workman and her family ran a booth advertising the benefits of CBD oil, Juice Plus, and Earthley products. Thomas Hughes and Cordell Haley manned a booth selling all types of merchandise including sunglasses, necklaces, rings, and bracelets. Shannon Ramsey was in charge of the booth selling Frontier Days memorabilia which included t-shirts, pins, and even commemorative plates engraved with Timpson logos.
There was truly a variety of both entertainment and food for every palate.
