You know Dairy Days are coming when people start painting on the shop windows in downtown Norris City. The theme "Celebrating our Champions" refers to the athletes that compete in NCOE's many sports events. Although not an official event of the Dairy Day committee, the week's fun starts off with the local Christian community sponsoring a musical praise event at 5 p.m. on Thursday night behind the United Cumberland Presbyterian Church. A full evening of special music is slated with Katie Naas and Wade Newton, Breanna Scroggins, Elizabeth Rhinehart, The Roads band, Jared and Denise Karns, Bryan Cowling, and Kaylea Chappelle. Mason Scroggins is the speaker for the evening. Bring chairs or blankets to sit on.
On Friday, vendors will be open on Main Street and Friday night is the Dairy Day pageant. The quilt show by the Norris City Quilters group at the senior citizens center is open Friday, 4-8 p.m. and Saturday from 10-4 p..m. The museum in downtown will be open and Little Egypt rides open at 5 p.m. The cake walk is at 5:30 by the stage. The night finishes off with musical guests The Trade at around 8 p.m.
