The first K-County Music Fest is slated to be held at the Kosciusko County Fairgrounds starting at 1 p.m.
Scheduled to perform are five well-known local acts. He Said She Said, Gunslinger, Sum of 3, Total Head Case and Subterfuge will take the stage throughout the evening.
“This is a benefit to make our fairgrounds handicap accessible,” says Bonnie Junker, vocalist for He Said She Said. “Which means there are a lot of structural changes that need to happen, so that everyone can enjoy all that the fairgrounds has to offer.”
As some may know, a lawsuit against Kosciusko County Community Fair Inc. was filed via the American Civil Liberties Union in 2014 due to parts of the fairgrounds reportedly not complying with the Americans with Disabilities Act. (see Suit Filed In District Court Against Fair)
While the fair expected to go on as planned in 2015, upgrades do need to be made to make the fairfrounds ADA compliant. Tony Zimmerman, Kosciusko Community Fair board president, says the upgrades could cost up to $4 million.
Food and beer will be available throughout the event. A number of community-sponsored items will be auctioned in a silent auction.
Additionally, there will be a paintball zombie hunt down on the track. Equipment will be available to rent for the hunt.
Bring a lawn chair or blanket and enjoy some solid tunes and lots of fun. Admission is $6 at the gate.
