Balloons may be the main attraction, but there will plenty to do on the ground as well at this year's Poteau Balloon Fest, scheduled Oct. 18-19.
“We have worked very hard to have activities and events for people of all ages," said Chris Ward, Poteau Chamber of Commerce board chairman.
This year’s event will include more than 30 teams competing in the KCBS BBQ Oklahoma State Championship Cook-Off, according to Chamber CEO Karen Wages.

October 3, 2013

The Poteau Police Department is now home to a prescription medication disposal container provided by the Oklahoma Bureau of Narcotics.
The drop box arrived Tuesday along with OBN Director Darrell Weaver and a large group of area prevention representatives.
The Poteau Police Department location marks the 141st container placed in the state to help with the safe disposal of medication. Since the programs inception two years ago, more than 20 tons of unwanted medications have been collected, according to Weaver.
