We had a very successful second annual celebration of agriculture – Diggin’ Wiggins Days, scheduled for March 28 and 29, 2014. We are excited to have partnered with the local Wiggins FFA Chapter, who celebrated their 75th anniversary!
We followed a similar format as last year with kickoff activities scheduled for Friday, March 28. The kick off activities included a tractorcade/parade in Wiggins, supper with the FFA at the Wiggins High School, and the TNT Dunk Squad finished the evening with explosively entertaining stunts! Vendor booths were set up at the Longmeadow Event Center on Saturday, March 29 along with Beer Garden and Play Land and Games from 9 am – 3 pm. A variety of activities were available throughout the day including various demonstrations, activities for kids, trap shoot, and poker tournament. A popular attraction was the Bellendir’s Blind Man Polaris Drive organized by the Wiggins FFA. Saturday night concluded with free dinner and entertainment by the very talented international headlining ventriloquist, Marc Rubben.
Your sponsorships were much appreciated, and we encourage you to participate again. We’re hoping for a bigger turnout next year! We have several levels of participation and sponsorship.
