Additional Events/Attractions

On The Edge 
2-Wheel Action Shows

The best way to describe what we do is gymnastics on two wheels. Just like the finalists on America's Got Talent, our riders conquer a montrous obstacle cource with amazing balance and a level of precision and control found in no other support. Unbelievable skills combined with a playful interactive show makes this show entertaining for the entire family.

"Old Ways" Demonstrations

"Old Ways" Demonstrations will take you back to the "old ways" as local folks show how "moonshine" was made...corn milling...shake making... cider squeezing...pork skin frying...quilting...black smithing...soap & hominy making and more.

Pioneer Village

Pioneer Village is a replica of just how the ole mountain towns used to be. A mercantile store with products and goods that only your grandmother might recognize. An old, one room schoolhouse, a log home with furnishings just like it was in the 1800's, a smoke house, barn and corn crib are just like it was then. It takes you back.
