Plans are for bigger Downtown Heritage Stampede


Along with the Wild West aspects of the event come the vendors. About 40 are planned, including a specific antique alley, which has a dual purpose.

“We want to put a bit of focus on many of our downtown merchants and the work they do, so we created a special section for them to display their items,” Thieme said. “It’s a chance to showcase some of the amazing antiques we have in town and how much a part they are of the city.”

A special Kiddie Korral is in place with a dress-up contest and stick horse races planned in the area around York Avenue and Dallas Street with prizes given away in both events. While a few weeks early, a special downtown trick or treat is also scheduled.

Participating businesses marked with a special pumpkin outside the door will be giving out candy to children in costume during the event. Businesses will be located in all four quadrants of the square, along North Main Street and York Avenue.

“We know it’s a little early, but it will give kids a chance to try on the costume and it’s another way for the family to have a little fun,” Thieme said.

For more information on the festival or to become a vendor, call Thieme at 817-598-4034.
