Friday night will feature a street dance on Sixth Avenue in front of the Palace Theatre featuring Ira Bradford and Bustin' Loose, and across town at the new Corsicana Opry and Event Center, the second annual Oil Baron's Ball will help raise funds to support the annual celebration of Corsicana's rich oil heritage.
