Bixby Optimist Club sponsors and coordinates Green Corn Festival

The Optimist Club of Bixby, Oklahoma will host the Annual Green Corn Festival on June 24-25 at Charley Young Park in downtown Bixby.  The event includes music, parade, carnival rides, bingo and other great games for young and old; but some of the greatest entertainment of the weekend is the Miss Bixby Pageant and the Youth Talent Show.


Optimist Clubs pride themselves on bringing out the best in kids.  Additionally, they support local communities in the way that the community needs most.  The Green Corn Festival is a celebration that brings the community together for traditional fun activities.


Check out the schedule here. 


Shown above is Miss Bixby, Sara Subramaniam, with the Bixby Green Corn Festival poster for 2010.  Students in 9 - 12 grades created posters that were judged and then auctioned to guests at a chamber luncheon meeting.  All proceeds benefit Optimist youth projects in the Bixby community.
