In 2012 the Downtown Bolivar Association assumed responsibility for Country Days. One of our primary goals was to move this event back to the square. In September 2012 we hosted Country Days for the first time. It was a 1 day event held on the Bolivar Square. By all reports we received it was a great success. This year we are hosting it again, it will continue to be a 1 day event and could be expanded to Friday evening as well. So far we have planned:
Little Miss Country Days for more information shoot us an email.
Kiddie Tractor Pull
Annual Car Show to include antique tractors and fire trucks
Live entertainment and street performers
Kids games and activities
More events are being planned and will be added to this list as details become available
We are always open for sugestions as to events you would like to see at our next Country Days.
