Vendors, food, fun and more planned for Aug. 5
Plan now to attend and enjoy the upcoming 7 Hills Music Fest, set for Aug. 5 at Henryetta’s Nichols Park.
The music will be from 4-10 p.m. with five musical guests on the lineup.
Nichols Park will be closed that day to allow setup of the venue, beginning at 8 a.m. Gates will open at 3 p.m. with music beginning at 4 p.m.
7 Hills Music Fest lineup includes Drew Baldridge, Showdown, One Nation, Lance Gouge, and closing out the event will be the Brent Giddens Band.
The music fest will also have family fun activities, vendors and food. There will be several cooling stations, lots of water will be available, and attendees can bring blankets or lawn chairs in order to enjoy the music.
Tickets are $35 in advance (with a $10 free play at Golden Pony) or $50 at the gate. Children ages 12 and under will get in free with an adult ticket holder.
Chamber Executive Director Genny Mooney announced this week that actual physical tickets are now available for purchase for those unable to do so online.
They are available at the Chamber office, Burnett’s Furniture, Rustlers, The Nail Boutique and The Shack 2.0.
Valerie Mosco and Kelly Dobson, of the Henryetta Chamber Events Committee, have worked hard behind the scenes planning the event. Attendees are reminded that you can still purchase tickets online at https://www. ticketsource.us/booking/ t-yagxmqp or scan the QR code with your cell phone camera. Online tickets are $35 plus a small processing fee.
In a recent interview, the duo was joined by Dustin Mosco in telling more about the day’s event.
“If you want to swim, you’re welcome to swim while the music is happening. You can bring your kayak if you want … We also have a fishing dock behind us, so you can fish if you want to…” Other events include volleyball, cornhole and face painting.
Attendees have a wide variety of food to choose from including barbecue, Philly cheese steaks, Indian tacos, lots of snow cones, lemonade and funnel cakes.
Buffalo Branch, who specializes native Western looks, is planning to be at the event.
“We’ve got several local vendors that are going to be there selling anything from tumblers to freshies, to clothes, hats, you name it,” they said.
Special attendees will be several state pageant title holders.
“We have the privilege of having Miss Oklahoma America, Miss Oklahoma American, and Miss Oklahoma American Strong Mrs. They’ll be taking pictures and doing autographs. And then also something fun. We thought it would be cool for the girls 12 and under. If you have a daughter and she’s interested, we’re going to have the girls set up with the pageant queens and they are going to teach them the pageant wave. And then they will actually get to have a group photo with them and they will actually take the stage,” they added.
Everyone is invited to join in the festivities as the Chamber seeks to add this event to the yearly list of things happening at Nichols Park.
“We want this to be successful. We want this to be bigger every time. So we’re very excited and we love you all. We appreciate your support. And the ultimate goal too, is we eventually want to have an amphitheater out here. So the more support we get, the better off it’s going to be.”
