After several years in the making, Depot Park is now officially complete and open to the public. On May 21, the entire community is invited to a day-long grand opening celebration. The event, dubbed Depot Days, will be hosted by the Ardmore Main Street Authority and will include various games and activities all afternoon and two musical performances in the evening.
Ardmore Main Street Authority Manager Trish Maher said she is looking forward to seeing the community getting to enjoy the park.
“It’s really been a community-wide effort to get this park, and it’s been several years in the making,” Maher said. “We’ve all put so much time and effort getting it going that just holding a ribbon cutting wasn’t good enough. We’re still doing that, but we really want people to come out and enjoy the space.”
The day will get going at 7 a.m. with the season opening of the Farmer’s Market, and the events at Depot Park will begin at 11 a.m. A wide range of activities and games will be taking place across the park all afternoon including a car and motorcycle show, bounce houses, a giant bubble station, lawn games, and various performances taking place on the stage.
There are also two eating contests set to take place.
“Casa Romo is sponsoring a taco eating contest with law enforcement and first responders competing against each other,” Maher said. “We’ve got the police, the sheriff’s department, the fire department, and groups from Lone Grove and Love County who’ll be competing.”
Eileen’s Colossal Cookies of Ardmore will be sponsoring a cooking eating contest. Maher said it will be a group contest with various teams competing against one another. The teams could be made up of a family or group of friends. Anyone who would like to participate is asked to sign up in advance at Eileen’s Colossal Cookies at 222 W. Main.
The event will conclude with two musical performances. Zain Braden will be on the stage from 5 p.m. to 6:30 p.m., and AK-Official on stage from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m.
Maher said AMSA is hoping to turn Depot Days into an annual event.
“We’d really like to see this becoming a yearly event to kick off the summer,” she said. “We’d like to see it grow to include other special events and promotions taking place across a few days.”
