There wasn’t a shortage of fun activities to enjoy as part of the Oakdale Sesquicentennial and All-American Bash this past week. With the guidance of the Oakdale Enrichment Society, several organizations stepped up to be a part of the celebration.

Here are some photos from the Thursday night events at the Oakdale Cowboy Museum and Saturday afternoon fun at the Oakdale Saddle Club Rodeo Grounds.
