Does anyone on here remember Saturday in the Park?
I have so many great memories of going to that every year. The lip sync contests were the greatest! Also the prizes they gave away, the food..it was all great! Sure wish SL100 would bring this back. They changed the location from Okeena Park to the new fairgrounds, and it just wasn't the same.

I always found it quite a waste of time and energy. That Radio station sucks anyway.

God bless Janet Westbrook! She is the one that got that ball rolling! Does anybody know what ever happened to her? Her and Kenneth were some of the finest people I ever met!

I loved Saturday in the park. My son is now 43 yrs old and we went every year when he was a little boy.You could buy things,the food was great.I believe I have a SL 100 shirt I got there. It was fun fun fun. I sure do miss it.Dyersburg has so few clean things to do now. If I remember correctly,they would have bands too.To me,the fair isn't as good as it was when it was by the cemetery Sometimes change isn't good.

Yes!! Lots of good memories. I remember the little boy who won the contest for lip syncing "I heard it thru the grapevine". He was so good.
