This is a huge weekend, we have the Big Bass Roundup, the 2023 Dragon Festival, and the best live music in town is all laid out for you here!

Big props to our sponsors at Crossties, Hobbs Manufactured Homes, and Tony Langford Roofing

The 2023 Big Bass Roundup for Runnin’ WJ Ranch is Saturday with over $10,000 in cash and prizes. 5K for first place, 2K for second place, and $1,000 for third. Plus, cash payouts every hour. Runnin’ WJ has done some amazing things for our community, and my family.
