The Clement Railroad Museum and City of Dickson are sponsoring the 2nd annual Dickson County Trivia Contest as part of the 61st annual Old Timers Day Festival. The contest will be from noon to 4pm at the museum on Saturday, May 4. There will be prizes awarded to the participants answering the most questions correctly.
The multiple choice quiz features 20 new questions addressing natives, residents, events, and landmarks from Dickson County’s 216 year history.
The quiz is open to participants of all ages who will take the quiz in the museum’s dining room where volunteers will ensure no body will be using the internet to look up answers. Winners will be notified after the contest is completed.
Last year, Dickson resident Larry Hillis won the top prize by answering 17 out of 20 questions correctly.
“As home to Old Timers Day for the 61st year, the City of Dickson invites everyone to come out to enjoy all the festivities, from the parade to the live music and so much more,” said Dickson Mayor Don L. Weiss Jr. “While the traditional activities are the foundation of Old Timers Day, we are always excited to add something new such as the Dickson County Trivia Contest.”
The theme for the 61st annual Old Timers Day is “Keeping Music Alive”. Traditional event include the pancake breakfast, parade, live music, Robert Spicer Memorial Dance Contest, food and craft vendors, living history demonstrations, and much more.
Recent additions include and essay contest for fifth graders, the trivia contest, cornhole competition, and a 5K run to benefit the Community Foundation for Dickson County. The 61st edition will add a classic car cruise-in on Friday night.
