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.
