DUMAS, TX (KFDA) - The Dumas Lions Club is ready to start cooking for the 71st Annual Dogie Days.

This highly anticipated yearly event has evolved over the years into a five day celebration including a large pit barbecue, carnival, parade and car raffle.

Barbecue and carnival tickets can be purchased all weekend, along with tickets to win a brand new Chevy Camaro selected by Angie West, the event's Head Wrangler.

Dogie Days is the biggest annual fundraiser for the Dumas Lions Club, and they aim to raise around $100,000 this year for around 40 different local charities.
