The days will be filled with bands, beers, bikes, food and, of course, fried turkey testicles!

Saturday, the Lizzi Neal Band will kick things off at 1 p.m., followed by Stone Free at 4:30 p.m., and Rollin’ Whiskey at 8 p.m.

The annual frying of the turkey testicles will begin early afternoon, and will occur as supplies of the delicate treats last.
