GLADEWATER, TX (KLTV) - An East Texas town is celebrating the oil boom days of the 30s. This weekend kicks off the 24th annual Gladewater Gusher Days. The event includes everything from free entertainment to activities for the kids. Organizers say there is a delicious event.

"Hush puppies bark off brought back by popular demand see how many hush puppies you can eat there's no charge for that," said Ken Ambrose, Gusher Days Chairman. "You can come and eat all the hush puppies you can stuff in your face for nothing."

Gusher Days runs all day Saturday and wraps up next weekend with the annual Bass Fishing Classic on Lake Gladewater.
