by | Sep 21, 2022 | Area news, Latest

In just a few weeks, downtown Farmersville is going to be bustling with activity as the community gathers for its annual Old Time Saturday celebration.

The event, set for Saturday, Oct.1, still has several opportunities to sign up to sponsor this year’s event, starting at $100 up to $3,000, or register as a vendor, runner, car show or parade participant.

To register for any of the OTS events or vote on the Silver Centennial Citizen, links can be found on the Old Time Saturday Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/OldTimeSaturdayFarmersville

According to OTS organizers, booth spaces for non-food vendors cost between $50 and $125 depending on electricity needs, which are distributed on a first-come, first-served basis.

All arts and crafts vendors will be located on the downtown square this year.

Food vendors are provided electricity and prices range from $140-$160 for a booth. All food vendors are required to obtain a Collin County Food/Service health permit, at http://collincountytx.gov which must be submitted five days before the event.

Running enthusiasts can register from now until the day of the race for the Audie Murphy Hero Run. Registration is $30 for the 5K and $15 for the Fun Run. Those who register in advance will receive a T-shirt.

“Race day registration is available, said organizers, “but we cannot guarantee you a shirt or a shirt in your size.”

Register for the race at https://secure.getmeregistered.com/get_information.php?event_id=137471&fbclid=IwAR2_LFC9LCwyTjFNpddNYItn1YTSC2pezpUO73CNTzf3cOmrZRaqOMECUWo

The race begins at 101 McKinney St. at 8 a.m. for the 5K and 8:10 a.m. for Fun Run participants.

Parade entries are still being accepted for those who wish to register to walk or ride in a vehicle, bicycle, horse, float or “other.”

The registration form on the OTS Facebook page must be filled out and returned by mail or emailed to OTS organizers. Get the form here https://drive.google.com/file/d/1fbT7lvkr8VTbEscat0ZMTrrJcDePwyeu/view?fbclid=IwAR0xiCokaL4srV617JPmkP7uWEtrHaBVqiPuN5mGth0vPwC1g0ktmQZ8jXQ

Car enthusiasts who wish to register for the OTS Car Show still have time. The fee is $10 and is open to all cars. The show starts at 8 a.m. on the square and ends at 1 p.m. Register for the car show at https://carshowpro.com/event/1128

Also considered timely is the fact that voting is now live for this year’s Silver Centennial Citizen. Voters can select one of the following citizens: Judy Brandon, Johnny Bratcher, Jim Foy, Joe Helmberger, John Klosterman, Elaine Smith or Doris Williams.

Voting ends Saturday, Sept. 24. Vote here https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/VQS32FP

If you like prizes and want to support a great cause, anyone can purchase a $5 square (or more) and be entered to win one of the following prizes: handmade quilt, shotgun, $500 cash or Yeti Tundra cooler.

Squares can be purchased at Independent Financial Bank, Bob Tedford Chevrolet, Dyer Drug and Farmersville Grain prior to the event or during the day at Old Time Saturday.

“The raffle drawing will be held at 4:30 p.m. at Old Time Saturday,” organizers said. “You do not have to be present to win.”

This year marks the 42nd year for the event and proceeds benefit Farmersville Centennial Inc., a nonprofit that aids the Rike Library, the Senior Center, the Civic Center and other organizations and improvements around Farmersville.
