JOPLIN, MO.---- A public forum will be held later this month to find out what residents want to see in an annual celebration. The planning process will be similar to one held in 2001 that led to the creation of the festival of the Four States. It was later renamed Boomtown Days, which continued yearly through 2011.
"We don't have an idea really of how to replace Boomtown Days. But we want to know what is the interest of the community and what is the spirit as far as, you know, is it the entertainment, is it the carnivals, is it the food? What do you, you know, what do you want to see?" Asked Patrick Tuttle, Joplin CVB Director.
The forum will take place at 5:30 p.m. on Thursday, August 28th in the basement of Joplin City Hall.
