First ever Mayor's Red Dirt Ball struck a great cord with the crowd. Mayor Dwight Cope's vision it is about bringing live music to the Park and keeping the Park a people welcoming, family friendly place. Friday night we (as Marauders) got to listen to the bands but Saturday we and our Marauder sidekicks spent our time at the Short Branch Saloon selling beer to support our acting troupe. We sent our daughter (Tulsa Kim) out to capture some impressions of the goings on.
She snapped musicians, music appreciators, flower girls from a wedding, swimmers, arts & crafts booths, face painters, shoppers, barbeque at the firehouse and folks enjoying beers and general merriment. And thanks to Lulabelles photos we can show even more.
If you made it I'll bet you'll be back for the Mayor's Blues Ball. If you missed it (I'm sorry) but make sure you don't miss the Blue's Ball Labor Day weekend or for that matter the 4th of July birthday bash.
You may have noticed but there is a twitter feed in the sidebar area of this blog. So Medicine Park is now on twitter.
This will serve two purposes:
1. I can created mini posts
2. Anytime there is a now post on Medicine Park Posts it will be announced on twitter.
There are now several million on Twitter it is the fast growing social network on the internet. Growing at a rate of more than 1300%. By clicking on the little Cobblehead in the Sidebar you can follow Medicine Park and why not!

Yes, folks the Marauders (that would be Marshal Payne and Little Britches) wished 108 moms a Happy Mother's Day on behalf of Medicine Park and the Marauders, giving them a card with a mini rose bud attached. That's when the cards ran out. We could have given out more. Read the whole story here.

Ready, get set, start building your raft!
Needs to be 4' x 8' (more or less), Powered by 2 people. Speed is good, creativity greatly appreciated. Everyone is welcomed. The more the merrier. Build it out of whatever: Wood, Styrofoam, popcycle sticks, lawn chairs, plastic. In essence "whatever floats your boat". They'll live music and good time. We'll be rooting for you!
Take a look at last year's entries.
Any questions just contact the Tavern and they'll fill you in.
