Toss a Tomahawk For Father’s Day

RIVERSIDE, Calif. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Nothing says Father’s Day (June 17) like a greased pole climb and some early morning banjo battles.

That’s according to Don Tucker, organizer of the 31st Annual Huck Finn’s Jubilee, a country and bluegrass festival held Father’s Day weekend (June 15-17) at the Mojave Narrows Regional Park in Victorville, California.

This year’s fiddlin’ festivities are topped off with a performance by country musician Roy Clark, but the former Hee-Haw host is just the final pluck on the banjo.

Events at the festival range from the practical – rope making, blacksmithing, musket loading, gold panning – to the more hick-centric – tomahawk throwing and the greased pole climb.

The event, which draws up to 15,000 visitors from all over the country, has something for every member of your posse.

Says Tucker, “The 3 to 6-year-olds love to play the nickel-in-a-haystack game while their grandparents listen to the music. It’s really catered to families.”
