Each year an average attendance of over 7,000 people, exhibiting over 100 arts and crafts vendors and food vendors for visitors gather in Friendship Park. Live entertainment will be provided throughout the day and Water Walker will be returning again this year.
Frontier Day honors early Americans who blazed the Shawnee Trail, the cowboys who drove vast herds of cattle over it, and settlers who stayed to grow and prosper. A Shawnee Trail Ride was first held in l960 for the 75th State Fair of Texas in Dallas and revitalized appreciation of Pottsboro’s roots. That appreciation grew into today’s celebration. Come on out and experience it for yourself! For more information, please go to www.pottsborochamber.com or call (903) 786-6371.
