More Information Less Information Galaxy Girl Arial Thrill ShowFree Show! 5:00pm & 7:00pm
Presented by Heartland Bank, Cornbelt Energy, Mid American McDonalds & Norberg Monuments.

Galaxy Girl Arial Thrill ShowGalaxy Girl is the newest extreme action superhero, and for obvious reasons! Galaxy Girl begins her act by climbing eighty feet high in the air before performing an incredible aerial gymnastic routine from a trapeze dangling with no safety nets or devices.

Then she begins her perilous climb to the 127-foot sway pole towering above the ground. As she arrives on the Aerial Space Platform atop the sway pole, the pole sways and bends drastically to near breaking, but Galaxy Girl retains her balance to perform a handstand on the very peak of the pole. To return to the earth's surface, Galaxy Girl gracefully slides down a cable in her "Slide for Life".

Galaxy Girl performs multiple shows daily and you’ll be talking about it for weeks to come.

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!
