Fourth Annual Donkey Basketball tournament set for March 18


Come out on Friday night March 18, 2016 to North Stokes High School to see the funniest and wildest show on earth. The Danbury Volunteer Fire Department and Rescue Squad are sponsoring the fourth annual donkey basketball game. Come out and see City of King Fire Chief Steven Robertson as well as other Stokes personalities attempt to ride donkeys that some have never been ridden before. You will be absolutely delighted as donkeys of Professional Animal Frolics attempt to rid themselves of their riders during the ballgame. The thrills, laughter, and surprises never end at a donkey basketball game produced by Professional Animal Frolics.

You will see your neighbors and friends attempt to ride donkeys that are specially trained for the game. Some have not been ridden very far even after hundreds of attempts.

The entire game will be comedy filled but there is also a hilarious half-time show. This is one production that you will want to bring the entire family to see. Game time is 7 pm and will match a team from the Danbury Volunteer Fire Department against a team of Stokes County Celebrities. Rodney Booth and the staff of WKTE 1090 will be on hand the night of the event doing the emcee work for the event. Homer Dearmin, the town manager for King has accepted the invitation to be our honorary pooper scooper for the event. Concessions will be available by the Danbury Volunteer Fire Department Ladies Auxiliary. Come see the wildest and funniest show on earth and decide who makes a donkey out of whom. Admission is $6.00 in advance; $8.00 at the door and children under 6 are admitted free of charge. You may obtain tickets from any member of the Danbury Volunteer Fire Department and/or Ladies Auxiliary. Also advance tickets may be purchased at the Danbury General Store and Dan River Family Restaurant. All proceeds from this year’s event will go to provide equipment for our junior firefighter program for youth ages 13 to 18. So make plans now to attend and support the Danbury Volunteer Fire Department in this great family oriented event.
