A new festival is trying to attract locals and people from out of town to Grove.
Saturday was the second and final day of “toes in the grand festival”, a trop-rock music festival at wolf creek park.
Saturday morning kicked off with the “Tiki Man 5k Fun Run” followed by live music and a car show
Residents participated in “Island Fun and Games” which included a limbo contest and the longest conga line in Oklahoma. This is the first year of the event and so far the Grove Chamber of Commerce has seen a great response from the public.
Andy Stewart, a Grove Area Chamber of Commerce board member, said “My favorite part of the event is the live music.Having it down here on Wolf Creek and people being able to boat in and listen to music or they can drive down and set up a chair and listen. I think it’s pretty unique.”
Donnie Crain, the Grove Area Chamber of Commerce President “Well when we started planning this we had great hopes and expectations and it’s so fulfilling to see it actual coming to fruition.”
Crain says that they plan on taking what they’ve learned from this year’s festival and use it to make next year’s bigger and better.
