Through July 23, 2017 – Back to the 50’s
Come with us as we pay tribute to the most exciting musical decade of them all! The decade that brought us TV dinners, hula hoops, quiz show scandals, talk show legends, and the birth of Rock and Roll. Continuing the tradition of the Fireside’s wildly popular live band shows, BACK TO THE FIFTIES will thrill and delight audiences of all ages. Our Fireside band featuring Steve Watts will bring you the music and the fun from such artists as Jerry Lee Lewis, Buddy Holly, Little Richard, Patsy Cline, Nat King Cole, Ricky Nelson, Johnny Mathis, The Everly Brothers, and much, much more!

The trail course has notable elevation changes but is not technically difficult to run or walk.
