The event starts with the carnival arriving at Lampe Park, and opening on Thursday.

On Saturday, Douglas High School sophomore Jakota Wass will be performing 6:15-8 p.m. at Lampe Park.

Wass, 16, will sing a variety of Country Western songs and ’70s rock music with his band the American Outlaws.

Wass has performed since age 12 at local farmer’s markets, charity events and guest appearances with Trippin’ King Snakes, Lacy J. Dalton, Annie Bosko and Cash Only. His largest venue was performing at our local truck pulls for the Axtive 20/30 club.

Wass’ passion for music has expanded into songwriting, learning new instruments and touring colleges during an upcoming trip to Nashville.

Mom Jodi said Wass loves meeting people, making new friends and entertaining the crowd.
