The Forestburg community comes alive this weekend with the 39th annual Forestburg Watermelon Festival on Aug. 10 and the annual Forestburg Riding Club Rodeo on Aug. 9-10.
Official events start at 10:30 am with a parade leaving from the school parking lot. There is no specific theme.
A barbecue lunch, with all the trimmings provided by our local cooks, will be available after the parade at the community center. Games for children of all ages and both gospel and country music are the afternoon activities.
Montague County Veterans Service Office will have a veteran’s outreach from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. to assist any veterans and their families with obtaining benefits.
