Hi everyone!  Travis back with my next installment of free things to do at this year's strawberry festival.  But the festival won't be around too much longer, so hurry up and get out there.  Ok, let's get to it...here are some more free things to do out there:

Rosaire’s Racing Pigs - (**NEW THIS YEAR**) Be ready for the thrill of a lifetime!  From the first bugle blast, until the last curly tail crosses the finish line, you can expect to be totally involved!  It's an action packed cascade of squealing adventure, where audience participation is a must!  Winning Pig Rooters receive free prizes provided by Rosaire's Royal Racers.
Galaxy Girl (also **NEW THIS YEAR**) Galaxy Girl ascends at first to a lofty 120 feet in the air where she performs a death defying beautiful trapeze gymnastic routine. Located at Armory Back.

Galaxy Globe of Death (again, **NEW THIS YEAR**) - The Galaxy Globe of Death riders perform precision stunts and maneuvers inside the motorcycle globe that make up the ultimate heart-pounding adrenaline rush thrill show.  Located at Armory Back.

Bluegrass Parlor Band with Cory & Jarrod Walker - (TWO DAYS ONLY – MARCH 13 & MARCH 14) Showtimes: 5:30 p.m. & 8:30 p.m.

Rick K. & The Allnighters - Rick K. will lead you through the Fabulous Fifties, gets groovy with the 60’s Explosion, then hustles you into the Disco Nights of the 1970’s and will send you to a head on collision into the classic top forty, pop rock of the 1980’s & ‘90’s.  Nothing boring here!  Daily in the Sweetbay Supermarket Showcase Tent.
Jay Taylor Band - As comfortable onstage as he is in on the ranch, Jay performs with a presence and sound that belie his 22 years.
