On Saturday, July 27, 2019, the Town will host the annual Bonanza Extravaganza! This year we are adding a Pie Baking Contest and adding a WING WAR (Chicken wing cook-off). Last year, we again had a record attendance (despite the smoke)! It was a success and it is all because of the record number of volunteers and sponsors that stepped up this year to help! The kids enjoyed the free activities (bounce houses, face painting, sack races, watermelon eating contests, and more), the quilt show grew tremendously with the largest quilt turn out in history, the new bands that came out were tremendous, the Talent Show grew again last year, and the variety of food vendors made the event even a bigger attraction! Bonanza's biggest yearly event is sponsored by the Town of Bonanza, the Bonanza Lions Club and the Big Springs Park & Rec District. Applications for hobby vendors, car show, parade, pie bakers, WING Warrior (cooks), talent show are all available at Town Hall.
