Summer is nearly over, which means it’s time for Healdton Oil Field Days & Rodeo.
The two-day event will be held this Friday and Saturday at the Healdton Oil  Museum. Chamber Coordinator Amber Ford said she’s been planning the fair since February.
“It’s grown since I started four years ago,” Ford said. “The number of cars in the show has grown… we’ve always had a great turnout.”
The Healdton Volunteer Fire Department will bring back their Junior Firefighter Challenge, an obstacle course for kids that lets them try their hands at firefighting skills. Whoever completes the course the fastest wins a trophy.
Bounce houses and a dunking booth will also make their return to the event, giving the community a chance to dunk Healdton High School’s basketball coach, Mike Worsham, and Healdton Chief of Police Jonathan Sumner.
“We always try to get a teacher,” Ford said.
The Okie Dokies, a local band, will return to Healdton to perform as well. Ford said this year’s event will include a live artist’s demonstration of wood-carving with a chainsaw. Guests can also compete in a wrench toss to raise money for the Healdton Volunteer Fire Department.
Admission to the rodeo is $5 in advance and $7 at the gate. Ford said advance tickets are nearly sold out, but some are still available.
Registration for the Oilfield Days Car Show will last from 8 to 10 a.m. Saturday, with the winner announced at 2 p.m. Fred Murfin of Redline Muscle Cars is hosting this year’s show.
The annual Oil Field Days parade is set for 10 a..m and will begin on Main Street in Healdton. Line-up for the parade will begin at 9 a.m. on 5th Street.
“[The parade] is a lot of local businesses and oil companies,” Ford said. “But we do have some classic cars in the parade too.”
Healdton Oil Museum is located at 10734 Hwy 76 in Healdton.
