There is also a Bean Bag Toss Tournament for two person teams. Live music starts at noon with Pick’n n Grin’n. Beginning at 10:00 a.m. the Market on Main Vendor Fair begins along with the Food Court. The day also will feature a wide variety of kid’s entertainment, including Cristo Rey Ranch Petting Zoo, and inflatable obstacle course, crafts, 9 hole mini golf, and the mini rubber duck races.

Live music continues at 4:00 p.m. with “Crank the Radio” and then at 8:00 p.m. “Midnight Road Crew” will perform downtown on Lot 21 just behind Main Street.
