ADA, OK--Saturday will be full of events for Ada residents to check out, including a red carpet evening for the top vocalists and performers in Oklahoma, and a bike race for a cause.

The 20th annual "Grand Awards Show" will be held at the McSwain Theater in Ada at 7:30 Saturday night. There are five contenders in each of the five categories, all of whom were chosen by audience vote in a preliminary competition. At the end of the evening, one overall winner will be crowned.

Performers like Blake Shelton, Reba McEntire, and Garth Brooks have all previously competed in the show. General manager Jae L. Stilwell says the night is unlike any other in Ada.

"We're trying to make this as close to the CMA Awards as we possibly can for people from Oklahoma and Texas, because some people will never get to do that sort of thing in their lifetime," said Stilwell. "So this is really a neat thing that we can do for them."

Tickets are still available at the price is $15 dollars. Even if you're not going to the show.. You can watch the star-studded limousine arrivals begin on main street at 6:30.

Also on tap for the weekend of October 18 is a city-wide bike race that will raise health awareness and money for the local Boys and Girls Club chapter.

The 3rd annual "Pontotoc Pumpkin Pursuit" bike race will be held within the city of Ada.

Riders will be offered their choice of four different bike routes--all featuring varying terrains and levels of difficulty.   

Contestants say the routes accommodate bikers at all levels.

"There's four different rides that you can do," said James Thomas. "A 10 mile ride, a 28 a 42 and a 62-mile race. So those are your options, and you can make that decision when you get there tomorrow."

If you're interested, you  still have time to register before 9 am Saturday.The on-site fee is $25. All  racers will begin their routes at the old Kmart building on Cradduck Road.
