Team Fastrax™ to Perform at 46th Annual Bob Evans Farm Festival

Saturday October 15th, 2016 Team Fastrax™ will be performing as part of the Bob Evans Farm Festival. The event is a weekend long festival held at the Bob Evans Farm in Rio Grande, OH.

The Bob Evans Farm Festival is held at the Bob Evans Farm in Rio Grande, OH, once home to the founder, Bob Evans himself.  The weekend long festival is a family tradition for many in the surrounding area. It features farm family fun, arts and crafts, delicious local food and children’s activities. As a special treat, this year at 2:30pm, Team Fastrax™ will perform their fan favorite patriotic skydive, with their amazing 2,000 square foot American Flag as well as their 1,100 square foot Honor and Remember Flag. Be sure to stick around after the performance for handouts and autographs from the team.

John Hart, owner of Start Skydiving, and founder of Team Fastrax™, said, “We are excited to perform at such a large family friendly festival.  It’s events like this, where we get to mingle with the fans, that are the most fun.”  

According to the Bob Evans Farm Festival website, in addition to the original Bob Evans Restaurant and food tent on site, the Bob Evans Farm Festival offers traditional fare including bean soup and corn bread, kettle corn, pies, apple dumplings, ice cream and Ohio-made cheeses and trail bologna, as well as other treats. Vendors include both concession and food items for sale. Children’s activities are a favorite attraction at the Bob Evans Farm Festival. In addition to the musical entertainment, farm demonstrations, unique shows and booths of crafters and artisans that are all popular among young people, the festival offers a special area catering to the young. In the Kids' area, you will find an interactive barnyard, a hay bale maze, game tent, kiddie barrel train, straw castle and corn pile.  Children will also enjoy the lead horseback rides and wagon rides at the Bob Evans Farm Festival.
