The 100th Annual Pontotoc County Free Fair drew crowds throughout the entire week from all over Oklahoma. Friends of Daniel Manuel 2018 was delighted and thankful to get the opportunity to greet constituents, provide candy for kids and handout campaign literature at the fairgrounds.
Candidate for Oklahoma House District 25 Daniel Manuel, Democrat, has been playing a role in the Pontotoc County Free Fair since he was a child.
"As an active citizen that appreciates the value of serving the community; it is a joy and an honor to get to contribute to the success of our county fair," said Manuel.
This week at the fair was just as busy for Danny as it has been in the past. Danny volunteered his time during week by providing commentary for the Kids Tractor Pull on Thursday.
In addition to the volunteering for the tractor pull, Danny provided obstacles for a Kid's Ninja Competition for Children ages 6 through 12 on Saturday.
"The kids excitement filled the air before registration was even open with many participating from not only Pontotoc County, but some from as far as Moore, Oklahoma and Texas." said Shelley Scifres, Pontotoc County Free Fair Director and local citizen. "We would not have a successful fair without volunteers like Danny."
The Pontotoc County Free Fair allowed Friends of Daniel Manuel 2018 to have an aggregate reach of around 250 people.
"Engaging with constituents was a great experience, I look forward to participating in the County fair again next year," said Manuel.
