DORA — The City of Dora is making final preparations for its inaugural Horse Creek Jubilee, set for Saturday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. in the Dora shopping center.

From local festival favorites, like the Face Painting Fairy and Artsy Fartsy, to area newcomers, like By Hammer and Fire, there should be something for everyone to look at as they enjoy concerts from local groups and a free children’s play area. Nonprofits, such as Backyard Blessings and Mission of Hope, will also be exhibiting at the event to raise awareness of their efforts to provide for needy residents.

9:30 a.m. — Elvis tribute artist Terry Padgett

11:15 a.m. — Motel Ice Machine

12:15 p.m. — Corner Cabaret

1:15 p.m. — St. Joseph's Church Youth Choir

2 p.m. — Elijah Butler Band

3:30 p.m. — Kool Katz

Admission to the event is free.

There will be a variety of food vendors at the event and area restaurants will open their doors as well.
