Web site offers information on upcoming Ox Cart activities
Ox Cart Days is fast approaching and the Star Prairie Lions Club wants to spread the word about what's happening at this year's festival, so a Web site has been developed that tells it all.
www.OxCartDays.com is the official site of the annual festival. The site is easy to navigate, with information about the fast pitch softball tournament, the bean-bag toss tournament and the karaoke contest. The site allows teams and individuals to register and pay entry fees for these events right online.
Individuals who want to buy Ox Cart Days raffle tickets may purchase them online as well.
The site also contains a page where people can view the clues for the popular medallion hunt. The person who finds the medallion can register their finding on the site and will be recognized on the site as the winner.
The site contains information on the parade, festival sponsors, the Star Prairie royalty and past queen's courts, a feedback form, map and directions to the festival grounds, a form you can fill out to receive an email regarding updates to the site, a downloads section where you can download and print a copy of the Ox Cart Days schedule of events poster and email links for contacting various event coordinators.
Lion's Club member Tom Gibson, creator of the site says, "The Web site is a long overdue project that allows anyone to access all the information regarding Ox Cart Days right from the comfort of their own home. With the ability to register and pay entry fees for certain events, and to buy raffle tickets directly from the site saves people time from making phone calls, mailing forms and checks, or finding somebody that is selling raffle tickets."
Gibson also states that having the ability to view and download the event poster will give people the opportunity to have that information available to them at all times instead of having to locate a place where a poster might be displayed.
Gibson encourages everyone with an Internet connection to visit the site to see what Ox Cart Days has to offer and for everyone to help the Lion's Club spread the word by emailing their friends, family, and any other contacts about the festival and its Web site.
