Wild West Weekend will take place October 21 & 22 from *10:00am - 3:00pm. Festival hours are 9:00am - 6:00pm. Anthony De Longis and his wife, Mary, will provide informative exhibitions of skill and daring with the traditional tool of the Old West, the bullwhip. We also welcome back the Jumbo Shrimp Circus, Banjo Cowpoke, Heide on Horse and the Billhillies!
BULLWHIP MASTER ANTHONY DE LONGIS
Anthony De Longis and his wife, Mary, will provide informative xhibitions of skill and daring with the traditional tool of the Old West, the bullwhip. They will do three shows demonstrating the whip, its use in the West, plus whip tricks showcasing their skill and precision. Each performance will be capped by their synchronized dual bullwhip tango performed to music. Anthony is well known in the movie industry as a fight and weapons coordinator. He trained Harrison Ford on bullwhip technique for his role as Indiana Jones in the Crystal Skull, as well as Michelle Pfeiffer for her role as Catwoman in Batman Returns. Recently Anthony was featured on “Extreme Marksmen” on the History Channel. Anthony and Mary will perform three shows a day (aprox 15 minutes) between 11:00am & 3:00pm www.delongis.com.
JUMBO SHRIMP CIRCUS
Whether on unicycle or on foot, members of Jumbo Shrimp Circus will sure make you crack a smile as they juggle, spin, jump, twist and delight.
New this year is Jimmy the Banjo Cowpoke. A former member of Ringling Bros. Circus, he will entertain young and old in his Wild West getup as he strums the banjo one minute and spins his lasso the next.
HEIDE ON HORSE
Heide on Horse is another new addition to Wild West Weekend. She rides her horse-puppet pony throughout the farm cracking jokes and bringing smiles to all who see her.
We are very excited to have the Billhillies back for the 3rd year. With their authentic covered wagon, dress and garb, you'll think you've gone back to the Wild West! Tour their wagon or sit back and listen to the sounds of the past.
*Farm Hours are 9:00am - 6:00pm. Western Weekend is 11am - 3pm. Activities and schedule TBA
