The last Saturday of September each year holds the celebration of Frontier Day in Pottsboro Texas. A festival to celebrate the rich history of Pottsboro TX. From a carnival to arts and crafts, the day will be filled with entertainment for all. Join in on the fun and games and then relax at Tanglewood Resort.
The local land was originally founded by Native Americans. Settling north of the Shawnee Trail, which became one of the great cattle drives. Pottsboro was established in 1876 by James A. Potts. He was a pioneer settler who donated land so that Missouri, Kansas, and Texas would extend its tracks westward. The cattle drives began in the 1850’s. Settlers who decided to stay versus people that passed through formed the community of Pottsboro. The cattle drives ceased in the 1870’s.
Saddle up for a huge event and join us in Pottsboro TX for a good time! Saturday, September 24th meet at Friendship Park for the celebration! The night before a carnival will be in town and will continue into Saturday for the festival. The park will open at 9:00 am followed by a parade starting on Hwy 120 and ending at Friendship Park. There will be kid’s activities in the park, dozens of crafts and food vendors, and live music at the park gazebo. There is something for everyone to take part in at the festival.
Tanglewood Resort is proud of the town it is in and is excited about this annual event. After playing games at the carnival and listening to live music come back to the resort to relax. Take a break in the pool or hot tub or enjoy a bite to eat at one of our dining options. The kids will have plenty to do on and off the resort as well as you. Enjoy a day of golf or refresh at the spa. Tanglewood Resort will make sure your weekend is filled with fun and entertainment, and the charming town of Pottsboro TX will do the rest.
