Shirley Homecoming has it’s line-up and we hope to see you at our favorite hometown festival.


The parade is going to be awesome this year with the Cross Road Angles leading the way for floats, beauty queens and rodeo riders. We have a special float entered again this year and we still have room for all veterans to be honored. Parade folks should be at the school parking lot at 1:30 p.m. for line-up.


Friday night at the Depot stage , Kasey Kimmons will open the two day event at 7 p.m. with Carl Acuff Jr. and his road show at 8 p.m.


Saturday morning is what all kids young or old can’t wait for: The Turtle races and kids games. Registration begins at 9:30 a.m. and games at 10 a.m. And remember folks: Please don’t paint on your turtles and please take them back to the area from where you found them.


The Community center will host a fundraiser for our senior lunch program 11 a.m. -2:30 p.m. serving burgers and hot dogs with all the fixin’s. There will be a potato salad and macaroni salad contest - and Michelle is in need of home-made desserts. Don’t forget the parade is at 2 p.m.


Saturday is the only day for rodeo this year, but it’s gonna be packed with excitement. Pee-wee’s start at 3 p.m. and the big show is at 8 p.m. You will have two performances from the drill team Cross Road Angels, from El Paso, Ark.
