It’s time for the annual Sulphur Well Homecoming. This year’s homecoming will be Saturday, August 20th, and Sunday, August 21st. The homecoming has been a family tradition for many years.

Vendors of all types will be open on both days with homemade crafts, food, and other items. The homecoming includes fun things for the children also. On Saturday at 4 p.m. the children’s games start with a bicycle rodeo, relay races, and a crowd favorite the pet show at 5:30 p.m.

Folks of all ages get to show off their talent at the showcase beginning at 6 p.m. with all ages welcome. Following the talent show, Arthur Hatfield Bluegrass Band takes the stage so bring a lawn chair and enjoy some bluegrass music.

Saturday ends with a kids’ glow stick shower followed by ‘Thunder over the Well’ fireworks.

Sunday the car, truck, tractor, and motorcycle cruise-in begins at 10 a.m. So, polish those vehicles up and cruise on down to Sulphur Well.

The Sunday worship services will be held from 11 a.m. to 12 p.m. on the Grove stage followed by live music from Little David and Bad Country.

Get those ducks ready for the 21st Annual Liz Jefferies Memorial Duck Race at 3 p.m.! I wonder who the guest duck master will be pulling those winners from the water.

The top three of the ten prizes this year are a Blackstone Grill, Outdoor Movie Theatre, and Drill Impact Set. Duck adoptions are still available at $5 per duck or purchase a quack pack and save.

If you have any questions or have a last-minute duck adoption call Terry Edwards at 270-528-4225.
