Downtown Humble’s Good Oil Days Festival has been a beloved staple for 39 years. This year, planners have taken the event to an exciting new level, sure to please attendees of all ages and from all across the area.
“We are very excited about the wonderful additions to our Good Oil Days festival this year,” said Pat Gill, festival co-chair. “We enjoy bringing the community together and highlighting our local businesses.”
The Saturday event will, for the first time, be preceded by a family street dance Friday night, April 5, aptly called “The Blowout.” There will be live music headlined by Jason Cassidy, followed by Louis Admas Diaz – with a DJ as well.
Also new this year will be an inviting beer garden in Uptown Park. There will also be food trucks available to attendees with an appetite for some fun eats. Tickets are required for the street dance and are on sale now at the Humble Civic Center; they will also be available at the gate, cash and card, until maximum capacity is reached at 1,500. “The Blowout” will be held from 7-11 p.m.
The Good Oil Days Festival on Saturday, April 6, will be filled with new offerings. The food trucks and beer garden will be ready to serve, lots of live music will fill the air, a Kids Zone promises to delight junior visitors, numerous vendors will showcase a plethora of wares, and the always popular and beautiful hanging baskets will be there with a booth where guests can check them and pick them up after they’ve enjoyed the festival. Attendees can stroll among the vendors, get a bite at one of the food trucks, take a rest at one of the rest stations, sip a beer in the beer garden – and there’s always room for ice cream. A strolling ice cream man will wheel his refreshing temptations throughout the festival.
The Kids Zone will offer a pony carousel, a petting zoo, moonwalks, a rock-climbing wall, a train and three pet-adoption booths. First Methodist Humble’s congregation has committed numerous volunteers to keep the area running smoothly.
Local high schools will have many groups performing and serving at the event – JROTC, drill, drumline, cheer and more.
The exciting additions to Good Oil Days would not have been possible without the generous sponsorships of presenting sponsors KAustin and Associates and Planet Ford, and Kids Zone sponsor Kingwood Emergency Hospital, as well as numerous other supporting sponsors.
“Humble Good Oil Days is getting bigger and better with the support of the community and our amazing sponsors,” said Gill.
As always, Good Oil Days’ proceeds go to support the city’s senior programs, including the Humble Senior Activity Center.
