Several local businesses and organizations are joining the celebration.  There will be a variety of free items and some local non-profit organizations are taking this opportunity to hold a fund raiser.  Entertainment will be provided by KXIT and R & T Music Mix to keep the celebration going.  For a complete list of booths visit us online at 

    Adding to the celebration is the Dalhart Volunteer Fire Department who will be hosting the First Annual Water Polo Championship.  The first 20 teams to register will be included in a double elimination championship challenge.  Teams must consist of two adults (18 and older) and one adult alternate.  Teams compete against each other with fire hoses to see which one can move the suspended ball across the wire.  The one moving the ball furthest away from them in the two minute challenge is determined the winner.   Water is included in this challenge, so spectators and contestants will have the opportunity to cool off from the summer heat.  Teams can sign up by contacting the Dalhart Chamber of Commerce office at 806-244-5646 or visit, summer celebration page for rules and registration forms.  

    The Amarillo Star vocal competition will be a part of the festivities for the evening.  The first six vocalists to turn in completed applications, media release forms and the entry fee at the stage the evening of the event can audition live.  Live Auditions will take place at 7:15 p.m. and 8:00 p.m.  Additional entry forms, fees and audition CD’s can be submitted that evening for inclusion in the contest.  Applications are available at the Chamber office.
