Carp Classic Fishing ContestTop
Who knew fishing for carp would be so exciting? We would tell you the secret about catching them, but every contestant keeps their strategy top secret. Commonly known bait for carp is sweet corn, but others “chum” for the fish. Some choose to fish along the shore, while others prefer to go out on their boat. Whatever strategy you decide, make sure it helps you win the grand prizes of a nice trophy and bragging rights!
Who doesn’t love music to help ease out of the long work week into a fun-filled weekend with family and friends? On the main stage Friday you'll find Boo Bradley before Big Bag VooDoo Daddy takes the stage later with their classic swing music. Saturday you'll get to find out what all the hype is about with rocking 80s music from The Hype! And don't forget about Sunday when Adam Greuel and the Space Burritos take the stage to close it out.
That's not all, there are plenty of other great musicians playing over the weekend, view the full lineup to find your new favorite band!

We know that they are adorable, and any family pet is another member of the family, but for their own safety, we are asking that pets stay at home. From being packed with people during the day to loud music and fireworks at night, they might feel a bit more comfortable in their own homes.
Think you've seen it all, already?
