The Redneck Rush

This will be as unique as the name, one of the first of its kind completely enclosed in redneckrushthe Alpena County Fairgrounds.  That means friends, family and spectators can watch all the action unfold in front of them.  There are stands set up for the super cool crawl corral as well. We are going to get the spectators involved in this one as well at specific obstacles with things like water balloon bombardment and others.  In addition come in Friday and stay with us, watch a movie on the outdoor screen in the camp ground. Roast some marshmallows, make some smores and enjoy the night before the Redneck Rush Saturday.  Plaid or camouflage attire is encouraged as well as all that is “redneck”.  This will be a family fun event open to every age.
