SHERBURN - This weekend, the Sherburn Holiday Festival will be filled with music, with four bands scheduled to perform during the three-day event.

"We booked an additional band this year, so this year we're music-intensive," said John Tirevold of the Sherburn Lions Club, which organizes the event. "We have a lot more music and a lot of different kinds of music."

The Sherburn Fire Department helps kick off the festivities Friday night with the "Finger Lickin' Chicken Feed," at the new firehouse from 5-8 p.m.

The chicken feed will be followed by a street dance at the firehouse from 8:30-12:30 a.m. The Twin Cities rock band "Shirts & Skins" will perform.

The action moves to the Sherburn City Park on Saturday, with an antique tractor and machinery show on display from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.

A free Zumba class presentation will be at the park at 10 a.m.

At 11 a.m., the sand volleyball and bean bag tournaments begin.

Bingo, rides, food stands, beer garden and face painting open and begin at noon, while Cow Pie bingo begins at 3 p.m. both days.

On Saturday night, from 5-8 p.m., the '50s and '60s band Starfire will perform for the street dance.

Sunday afternoon will include the big parade, with the kiddie parade beginning at 2:30 p.m. and the main parade begins at 3 p.m.

Following the parade, the local family group Bee Kays takes the stage at 4 p.m.

The kids tractor pedal pull begins at 4:30 p.m.

At 6 p.m., the barbershop quartet SongQuest will perform, with the raffle drawing wrapping up the festival at 7 p.m.
