Helping just an hour or two as a volunteer at the Okie Noodling Tournament can make a big difference in the success of the event. We need your help on Friday (June 17) helping vendors, on Saturday (June 18) helping with kids' contests like the watermelon crawl, and staffing the Information Booth and more. The big event is a key draw for Pauls Valley and also increases traffic to our stores and businesses. Sign up to volunteer today!

It's Never Too Early to Start Planning
for Fallfest & Christmas in the Valley
Planning is beginning for a couple of upcoming events. Both Fallfest and Christmas in the Valley (a new name for a new event) are going to be big attractions to Pauls Valley and its business community.

Volunteers are needed to help plan the events, work the events and clean-up after the events. So if you can commit to help, it would be greatly appreciated.
FALLFEST, Saturday, Oct. 29th

This year, Fallfest is moving to Saturday afternoon. Last year’s event brought several hundred to downtown and expectations are bigger this year.

Features of Fallfest will include carnival-like games, candy and toy giveaways, facepainting, photo opps, and other amusements. This year we are hoping to add a haunted house and a few other spooky features.

If you’re interested, join this planning committee. Initial members are Pamela Popejoy, Travis John, Connie Upton and Allie Crow.
CHRISTMAS IN THE VALLEY, Saturday, Dec. 3rd

Marketing has already begun by posting information with Oklahoma Department of Tourism (TravelOK) and on various statewide websites to get the news out. The City of Pauls Valley has been instrumental in getting this event kicked off.

A Christmas planning committee is looking for more members. Participants already signed on include Katherine Smith, Grace Farnan, Sarah Byrd, Mary Gowing, Becky Ledbetter and Bonnie Meisel.

The event will feature a Christmas market, a life-sized snow globe for photos, roaming carolers, decorate your own ornaments, an ugly Christmas sweater contest, an adventure walk through downtown, s'mores and hot chocolate, and much more. The Vault will be hosting an Art Market.
