More Information Less Information Kachunga and the Alligator ShowFree Show! 5:00 & 7:00pm
Presented by Heartland Bank, Cornbelt Energy, Mid American McDonalds & Norberg Monuments.

Kachunga and the Alligator ShowThis show may very well be the most exciting show you will ever see. It is guaranteed to keep you on th edge of your seat. Watch in astonishment as a real American Bushman bare-handedly apprehends a nine foot three hundred pind alligator. He will then host the massive reptile up out of teh water and carry it to a platform for all to see.

After Kachunga's incredible dance with danger, the show will go on to dismiss many misleading issues about the American Alligator and replace them with real facts.

Kachunga and the Alligator perform multiple shows daily and you'll be talking about it for weeks to come.

More Information Less Information Kid DavieFree Show! 6:00 & 8:00pm
Presented by Central Bank, Marquis Energy, & Variety Attractions.

Kid Davie ShowTo say Kid Davie is a veteran entertainer is an understatement. Although his professional career started 30 years ago, his first press came when he was just 4 months old. He made the Chicago Tribune for standing in his fathers hand. Balance has always come naturally to him, making stilt walking, ball walking, and slack rope walking look effortless. Growing up as a child this "Kid" would dream of being in the circus, doing all the things he saw. The skills of circus performers always got his attention.

As a young man Kid loved to watch Red Skelton, Jerry Lewis, Danny Kaye and Johnny Carson. Then he learned that Johnny Carson got his start as a magician he jumped in with both feet. Practicing for hours and studying the likes of Houdini and Blackstone.

Kid was also intrigued with another type of magic. The magic of mime. Watching Marcel Marceau and Sheilds & Yarnell he loved the illusion of creating an image or thought with nothing more than movement. In the mid 70's he moved to the San Francisco area and performed at Fisherman's Warf doing street shows.

Being interested in so many different forms of entertainment it took awhile to realize he wanted to do it all. Years of practice later, variety seems like such a small word to describe his talents.

To date Kid has performed in Canada, toured in Japan twice, toured the United States for decades performing at County and State fairs. Performed at countless schools doing an inspiring show with several positive messages. He has had his own children's TV show, "Kidders Cartoon Castle" and was on "The Late Show with David Letterman".

Kid Davie is a unique, multi-talented entertainer. With a wonderful light-hearted sense of humor, warm out-going personality, he exhibits a great rapport with audiences of all ages, making him an "Entertainer Extraordinaire."

Kid Davie performs multiple shows daily.

Forgotten Highway at The Bureau County FairWhile visiting the Beer Garden, make sure to stick around for the Country Music of crowd favorite Forgotten Highway.

About the Band

The perfect harmony between today's modern country hits and yesterdays country classics, Forgotten Highway prides itself on being able to successfully walk the line between the two worlds. Combining the guitar sounds of the 1950's and integrating them with modern country and acoustic instruments has given Forgotten Highway one of the most unique sounds on the music scene today.

Teaming up with some of the youngest and most talented musicians in Southern Wisconsin has allowed front men Erik and Andrew the opportunity to create and refine a sound that is as wonderful and unique as anything that comes out of Nashville today. Performing at Country on the River and playing on main stages of church festivals and 4th of July parties after touring for only 2 years seemed to be the pinnacle of their success, but Forgotten Highway has made it clear that they are not at all done, and are scheduled to open for Phil Vassar, Tyler Farr, and Sawyer Brown over the course of the 2014 tour season.

Forgotten Highway is a name you won't forget!
