Music in the Park

On Fridays in June, Historic Downtown Sikeston organizes Music in the Park, held from 6:00 - 8:00 p.m. in Malone Park. There is usually BBQ for sale and some free goodies for the kids. The picture below is from a couple weeks ago. Tonight Anna Catherine DeHart will be playing. Anna is an up and coming Nashville hopeful who opened for Kenny Rogers a couple weeks ago!

Sikeston Corporate Games

Every other year, the City of Sikeston organizes the Corporate Games, a friendly competition among employers in Sikeston and the surrounding area. The costs to the city are minimal, and are mostly covered through sponsorships. Teams compete in events such as volleyball, softball, horseshoes, tennis, triathlon, canoe races, fishing, golf, and tug of war. The photo below is from Trivia Night, which sadly, the City of Sikeston team on which I competed was not triumphant. Perhaps predictably, the Sikeston Public Schools team took home the trophy! The famous dogs category really tripped us up...
