Choctaw Labor Day Festival 2012

Well...clearly from the title, I am a little late in posting :) 
Better late than never, though, right?

Each year the Choctaw Nation host the Labor Day Festival.  The festival lasts several days and they have musical guests scheduled to perform each night.  There is a carnival and many information booths.  It is all free...the rides, the concert, etc.  There is a charge for concessions.  Many people bring their RV's and stay on the grounds for the entire festival.  I have always wanted to go but for years I was always on call for my job over Labor Day weekend.  Plus, it is quite a long drive from our home.  However, we made arrangements this past year to go.  We had a great time.  We chose to go on the night that Ricky Skaggs was the musical guest.  It was an outdoor concert.  He was with Martina McBride as well, but since we had at least a 3 hour drive ahead of us to get home, we left as soon as Ricky Skaggs was over.  We might need to get a hotel this year when we go!

Here are some of the pics I took...
