Race a Coaster Car
Build and race your own Coaster Car (think "soapbox derby") at this year's Neosho Fall Festival! 

Last year's race was a big hit. Don't miss out on the fun! 

Young or old, boy or girl, everyone is welcome to compete by building and racing their own coaster car. Entry fee is $10 for first car and driver, and $5 for each additional driver. 

Do it for the competition. Do it for the experience. Do it for the sheer fun of it. Do it "just because."  And we'll see you at the finish line.

Enter the Scarecrow Contest
Build and show off your personalized scarecrow! Make and decorate using your imagination!

Gather your family, friends, co-workers and students to join in the scarecrow contest, then auction if off to benefit your group or organization! A portion of the auction proceeds will go back to support next year's event and to Neosho Bright Futures. 

Scarecrows will be displayed in downtown Neosho all day Saturday, Oct 4 and until the scarecrow auction at 3 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 5. 

There is no registration fee. However, you will still need to send a registration form to Neosho City Hall, Attn: Fall Festival, 203 E. Main, Neosho, MO 64850. 

Please register by Sept. 19!

Enter the Pet Contest
Many pets are cute but yours is just a little cuter, isn't it? Especially in that little outfit. Admit it. Or, if you don't think so, well your pet may be able to perform a special trick. Or maybe it just, um, sort of resembles you. No matter in what area your dog or cat really shines, enter them in the Faithful Friends Pet Contest at Neosho Fall Festival! It's free to sign up and you may just win a prize! See flyer and registration form for more info!
