Back Yard Bash set for Friday and Saturday

Bookmark and Share

Each year multiple churches and businesses in the Guthrie area join together to host the Children’s Festival known as the “Back Yard Bash”. This year the event will be Friday and Saturday (July 27 and 28) from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. at the Cottonwood Flats.

The heart of this effort is to link arms with others in our community to provide a fun and safe environment for the children of Guthrie and Logan County so they might enjoy free food, music, inflatable toys, carnival games, give-a-ways and Bible stories.

In addition to the activities, organizers will be handing out free school supplies and various other prizes.

Teams of volunteers make the Children’s Festival possible. They pack up tables, chairs, sound equipment, and many other things and transport all of it toward downtown Guthrie to the open area on Guthrie’s west side. There they set up tents, carnival games, food, animals, music stage, inflatables and many activities for children and their families.

2005 was the first year for the Children’s Festival which exceeded expectations with 1,338 people attending the three-day evening event. Since then, the festival has become a rally point for the region. In 2010, more churches joined with 32 businesses to serve almost 3,000 children and adults over a two-day venue.

    Jen – they pushed the hours back to 5-9 on Saturday due to the heat they have had over the last few years and the expected forecast.
