Last year's first all-county, off-site Fun Festival at Fort Hunter was a HUGE success, and this year we aim to be even better.
Grand prizes will be drawn at the Festival. You need not be present to win.
The Fun Festival will feature:
Popcorn Hat Players present Little Red Riding Hood
Help the precocious Little Red stay on the right path and watch out for the Big Bad Wolf! Will the Woodcutter save the day? Silly songs and dances will keep your toes a tappin’ in this classic that will have you laughing all the way to Grandma’s house!
11:00 a.m. on the Corncrib Stage
Junk Rock Drumming Ensemble
Performing on oil drums, plastic tubes, milk cans and various unusual objects, JUNK ROCK makes the audience part of every show! With comedic wit, virtuosic drumming, and unique showmanship, JUNK ROCK keeps the crowd movin’ and groovin’ to the beat
12:00 p.m. on the Corncrib Stage
