Heart

When: Fri-Fri, Sep 7 - Sep 7, 2012
Where: Grandstand
Time: 8 pm

Sisters Ann and Nancy Wilson first showed the world that women can rock when their band, Heart, stormed the charts in the ‘70’s with hits like “Crazy on You,” “Magic Man,” “Barracuda,” “Straight On,” and so many more.  Not only did the Wilson sisters lead the band, they wrote the songs and played the instruments too, making them the first women in rock to do so.  Heart continued topping the charts through the ‘80’s and ‘90’s with huge hits like “These Dreams,” “Alone,” “What About Love,” “If Looks Could Kill,” “Never,” and a string of other hits that showcased the sisters’ enormous talents as musicians and singers.

Nearly 35 years after their first big hit, Ann and Nancy Wilson were back in the Billboard Top 10 in 2010 with Heart’s “Red Velvet Car” album, and a Top 5 DVD (“Night at Sky Church”).  Heart will be sure to rock a packed grandstand!

RMPA Tractor Pull

When: Sun-Sun, Sep 2 - Sep 2, 2012
Where: Grandstand
Time: 7 pm

Watch horsepower like you have never seen before! Considered the most powerful sport on earth, the object of tractor pulling is to see who can pull their sled the farthest. Competitors must combine driving skills, tire traction, knowledge of track conditions, the right gear ratio and an excess of horsepower to become winners. Whether you’re measuring foot-pounds of torque, cubic inches of displacement, or raw horsepower, you’ll have to admit, this ain’t your grandpa’s tractor! Watch drivers from around the region pull tons of weight through the dirt and mud. Don’t try this at home. . .especially with gas prices the way they are.
