The kick off of 2014 was celebrated by Tatum residents of all ages in many different ways.

Many people chose to stay home in the comfort and safety of their own home and watched one of the New Year's Eve TV specials.

Some of these folks purchased fireworks from the local stands and celebrated at midnight by shooting off the fireworks and lighting sparklers. Loud bangs and pops could be heard ringing throughout the town.

Over at the Bar None Cowboy Church, there were hundreds having their own unique celebration. The evening started off with a chili cook-off between the different church ministry teams. There were a variety to choose from like the wild boar, elk, deer, and even rabbit. The winner of the Best Chili Overall went to the Youth Team.

At that time, the mechanical bull competition began for various age levels.

As the band began to play, the dance floor filled up with children and adult alike grabbed a partner for a little boot scootin'.

A fireworks display ended the evening.
