Celebration Invites Former Choctaw Co. Residents Back Home

BOSWELL, OK -- A Choctaw County town was busy with an annual festival that invites former residents back to visit their hometown.

The 76th Annual Homecoming celebration took place in Boswell this weekend. A parade was held Saturday morning and there was also a golf tournament and the crowning of the homecoming princess.

Four class reunions are going on in town as part of the celebration, including a class from the 1950's.

Homecoming Commitee secretary-treasurer Jeannette Robison says there is one man who has been coming to the event for 75 years now. Some people gathered at the lake for parade awards to be handed out.

It wraps up Saturday night with a rodeo and dancing in the street downtown.
