Homer's Backyard Ball helping more charities

Amarillo, TX - Homer's Backyard Ball has helped hundreds of area children and now they've extending their services to help hundreds more.

The musical festival is Saturday from 11:00 a.m. to 11:00 p.m. on the acreage at I40 and Whitaker in Amarillo.

It's located right next to Splash Waterpark. 

Cook teams will be providing free barbecue from 3:00 to 5:00 in the evening.

Several bands will be performing throughout the day, with the headliner being Cooder Graw.
