Corral Up Your Friends for a Wild West Sheridan Celebrates
After the parade, the western theme will continue with live contemporary country rock music performed on the Main Stage by Shotgun Lullaby. This amazing group of six musicians presents an exciting combination of multi-instrumental melodies highlighting pleasing vocal harmonies that make for a high energy, foot-stomping, rocking good time. You will recognize many of your favorite modern country songs, as well as some cool stuff you may not have heard. For certain you will find your toes tapping and your feet itching to get up and get dancing.
While you are in a countrified mood, visit the Tandy Leather tent and create a FREE leather craft. Our younger attendees will be enchanted with the variety of animals in the FREE petting zoo. They can also practice their own horsemanship skills with a FREE pony ride. Get a jumpstart on your holiday shopping and gain useful personal information to improve your lifestyle by visiting over 90 exhibitor booths. But the excitement does not stop there. The local Supersonic Frisbee Dogs will be on hand to thrill and entertain you with freestyle, “updog” antics at least once in the morning and once in the afternoon. Food trucks selling tasty lunch options and the Knights of Columbus beer booth will be back for our mature attendees.
