LA PINE, Ore. (KTVZ) – La Pine Frontier Days kicks off Friday morning and continues into the fourth. The La Pine community is preparing for four days of fun-filled activities, including some new features. People were busy Thursday with preparations at the site, getting it ready for the public.

Ann Gawith and her husband have been involved in Frontier Days since 1998, and Ann became president of the La Pine Frontier Days Association in 2002.

“So 24 years for me,” they said. “It just always does my heart good to see the vendors come in and see all the hard work come together and hopefully take a minute to relax and enjoy the music, and have a beverage, and enjoy the fruits of our labors.

They said people can expect the midway completely reconfigured at the new site. The stage has moved to the center, there’s a childhood of shade, and with the bigger location there’s more places for people to sit.

Bounce houses and stick pony endurance rides have been added for the kids.

The Rendezvous Village is another new addition- there are tipi’s set up and two mountain men who will show old-fashioned kids games, like hoop rolling, tomahawks, and bows and arrows.

There will be a variety of fun activities, from apple pie contests, to bears and mustache competitions, along with the traditional fireworks, a fun run, the 21st annual grand prix lawnmower race and so much more.

I asked Meghan Edwards who will be working the event what she’s looking forward to most.

“I’m looking forward to all the food for sure and the fish pond for sure, and all the people.”

The event is at a new location, 16260 6th Street in La Pine.
