The 17th
KKOA Hotrodding Hullabaloo,
is gearing-up for a fall
show-down in Denison, Texas

Text: William "Slade" Derringer

    Last year, KKOA changed its established 15 year run of being on the last full weekend of October (generally on Halloween), to the last full weekend in September (Fri.-Sat.-Sun.). Giving kemp'ers, who requested it, a warmer fall temp-zone. And, it worked bigtime! Ya'just can't be kool, if it's cool outside.

    And, even if Denison is in Texas, it's just one mile over the Oklahoma/Texas Red River border. Check the road atlas, Texas is a big state, and the Gulf of Mexico, swaying palm trees, and 70-+ temps is waaaay south of Denison. Like 400-500 miles south. But last year, and being 30 days earlier than the past 14 years, hotrodder's experienced 70-+ temps in the big "D", and I don't mean Dallas.

    Ideally, Denison, Texas is centrally located on a major artery (Hwy. 75), between Tulsa and Dallas, and 20 miles east of the Ft. Worth, OKC, I-35 North/South Corridor, plus lot'sa surrounding bedroom communities like Gainesville, & Ardmore, Ok. It's also just the right size population, 62,000, with Denison & Sherman combined, (their city limits meet each other). Hummm,...come to think about it, Denison lays out like Salina, Kansas, home of the Leadsled Spectacular.

    And, Denison has (2) landmark 1950's facilities that fits kemp'ers off hours lifestyle! The time stood still, 1958 built Watson Burger Drive-in, and the neon 1930's Rialto Theater, both just two blocks apart on Main St. Denison, and two blocks from the Hullabaloo show grounds (Green Forest Park). Hmmmm,...sounds like shades of Salina again, and the Cozy Burger & Stiefel Theatre. hummmm...

    Speaking of Green Forest Park it's kool enough to hold a couple-a-hundred kool kemps, and the adjoining extra wide Crawford Street another two hundred, w/room to expand further if needed, which we're about there.
The Green Forest Park show grounds is getting a major face-lift, and a kool back-drop, and new Restrooms!

    Yip, it's gonna be kool Daddy-O! Backing up to the show park is the old high school football stadium that created a nostalgic back-drop to the show. As this is being written, construction is underway to completely tear down the concrete bleachers and replace them w/new ones, and add a super high sky box for the press. Along with the remodel, there will be new restrooms built that we will be able to use for the Hullabaloo. And, a new face-lift is being given to the park entrance, with future plans of improvements on
the table.

    You won't want to miss the rockin' Saturday night @ the Rialto Theatre! Featuring "A Boy Named Sue" and "Hello Mary Lou"Concert preformed by tribute artist's Bennie Wheels as Johnny Cash, and Billy Casey as Ricky Nelson. Along with Eddie Valen' 50's Branson Revue, all backed up by the fabulous Rockem-Stockem band.

    Plus, on the same ticket, the super popular "50's & 60's Pin-up and Cowgirl Beauty Contest." It'll make guys howl at the moon. Open to all girls 18 and older.

The warmer weather last year was a real welcome from previous years out at the run-what'ya-brung-drag races on Sunday. Since it's held on the old 1950's built Perrin Air Force Base, now North Texas Regional Airport, it has 1,400 acres of wide-flat runways, with no problem on shut-down space, and lots of spectators to cheer on the racers.

    With all the new improvements coming on board this year, the 17th Hotrodding Hullabaloo is shaping up to be a Cracker Jack shindig w/lots'a new surprise's in the works.

    So don't delay, get your room booked early at the Best Western Texoma Hotel & Suites. (903) 327-8883. It's super clean, comfortable, and just $72.00 + tax, and has a perfect for hangin' out lobby, or tire-kickin' in the parking lot on the off- hours. And, it's just a hop-skip & and a 50' Jump, from the Braums Ice Cream next door...yum, yum. Be sure to mention you're with the KKOA car show to get the good room rate.

    If you need info., or a vehicle entry form to enter, or entry form for the Pin-Up & Cowgirl Contest, just give us a call, or email to: Remember all vehicle entries get to show & shine at Forest Park, and drag race at the airport.

    Don't miss this fall season round-up of the koolest kustoms and hotrods on planet Earth, all branded "Traditional Hotrodding."
