Frazee's annual Turkey Days celebration is returning this weekend, Friday through Sunday, July 27-29, with the theme "Gizzard of Oz."

This year the women are taking over the planning of the event with Aleisa Jopp at the helm, and Jolene Tappe and Rhonda Ueke helping her co-chair the event.

Many of the tried and true events will return this year again including the crowning of the new Frazee Care Center King and Queen to kick off the event.

The Mystery Gobbler clues will be given out throughout the event, and of course there will be the ever-popular street dance.

The Tyler Shipman Memorial Car Show will line Main Street, and the Road Rally will leave from there.

There will also be a flea market, food court, golf scramble, sand castle building contest, fishing contest, the Dolores Smith Memorial Turkey Trot, basketball, Turkey Crawl for the tots, the Jr. King and Queen Contest and games for the kids.

With too many more events to list, there will also be the popular demo derby and parade winding up the event.

So, follow the Yellow Brick Road to Frazee later this month and enjoy the festivities.
