FireAnt Fest 2014 – Entertainment at Telegraph Stage

Now in its 32nd year, The FireAnt Festival is Marshall’s oldest, hippest, most charming fest. AND it receives no public funding from the City of Marshall. So we’re super grateful to our sponsors at the entertainment stage. Otherwise, there’d be no music and dancing! There are dozens of other sponsors who support the other activities – the FireAnt 5K, the Tour de FireAnt, and more. The whole shebang is presented by The Marshall Chamber of Commerce.
