This week's best bets

1) Fair Entertainment

Check out local acts Shiny Penny, Mike Milligan and Steam Shovel and The Time Travelers at the Howard County 4-H Fair throughout the weekend.

Mike Milligan and Steam Shovel and The Time Travelers take the stage tonight, with Mike Milligan going on at 8 p.m. and The Time Travelers show starting at 9 p.m.

The following night Shiny Penny takes the stage at 8 p.m. They're coming to the fair for the first time, and they're bringing with them an improved show that will include brand new music, like their latest single "Insanity." They're fresh off a performance at the Warped Tour, and they say they're looking to make this show the highlight of their summer.

Both night's shows happen on the Community Howard Regional Health South Grandstand at the fairgrounds in Greentown. The shows are free, but there is a $5 fee to park at the fairgrounds.

2) We Ride for We Care

Flying Toasters will be in town for a performance at Harley-Davidson of Kokomo as part of its We Ride for We Care event Saturday.

The event starts at 9 a.m. with a breakfast and registration for the bike ride. The last bike leaves at 11 a.m. and returns at 3 p.m.

Cost is $20 for riders and $10 for passengers and proceeds benefit We Care.

The Flying Toasters will perform from 5 to 10 p.m. at Harley-Davidson of Kokomo, and The Social will provide a beer garden.

3) All-stars of comedy

Comedy all-stars Brent Terhune and Mike Paramore perform at Laugh House Kokomo downtown all weekend.

Terhune is a writer for the nationally syndicated Bob & Tom Radio Show (he’s been on the show, too). He’s performed at the Laugh Your Ashville Off Comedy Festival (2013), The Limestone Comedy Festival (2013), The Cleveland Comedy Festival (2013, 2nd place), and Gilda’s Laugh Fest.

Paramore has opened for comedians like Damon Wayans, Earthquake, Conan writer Deon Cole, Loni Love, Comedy Central’s Steve Byrne and Saturday Night Live's Jay Pharaoh.

Tickets to the show start at $8 and can be purchased at the box office, 113 E. Sycamore St., or online at www.laughkokomo.com.

Shows are 7 and 9:30 p.m. today and Saturday.
