Crawfish, country and fun(d)raising

Tuesday, May 1, 2012

The schedule of performers has been announced for Saturday's "Cancer Sucks!" Crawfish Festival to benefit the American Cancer Society Relay For Life.

The festival will run from noon until midnight at Sand Creek Farms, located north of Shelbyville at 3125 U.S. 231 North.

Live entertainment will start at 1 p.m. Country singer Keith Anderson, perhaps best known for his song "Pickin' Wildflowers," will headline the concert with a performance at 7 p.m. After Anderson, Bitterbox and Rayz'n Cain will carry the festival on up to midnight.

Admission does not include the cost of food or beverages. Crawfish boil will be available by the pound or through an all-you-can-eat pass.

Not just crawfish

For those who don't like crawfish, many other concession items, such as hamburgers and fried pickles, will be available.

Those attending should bring folding chairs or blankets for seating.

Admission tickets are $10 in advance, $15 at the gate and are available from Trott Powersports, The Hair Company or the studios of WLIJ/WZNG, or by calling (931) 619-1666.

The last firm figure for tickets sold was 800 general admission and 100 VIP tickets, but ticket sales have been ongoing and tickets will also be sold at the gate.

Relay for Life

The Relay For Life itself will take place June 1-2 at Bedford County Agriculture and Education Center.

Proceeds from the Relay For Life and the various team, committee and individual fundraisers which feed into it are used by the American Cancer Society for medical research, patient services, education and advocacy in the fight against cancer.
