[almost] Anything Goes went despite rain; Street Dance tonight

Despite the threat of rain all day and the eventual downpouring that turned Summers Field into Summers Lake, the ‘Anything Goes’ games went on despite all. With events such as the three-legged race, egg relay, water balloon toss, tug-o-war and football catch nearly 250 people showed up to either participate in or support the games. Taking first place was the Attack Soccer Team while Bankston Lumber came in a very close second. Rounding out the top three was Lamar County Primary School. While rain and scattered thunderstorms are still in the forecast for middle Georgia the ‘Street Dance’ scheduled for tonight has been promised to go on “rain or shine.” In fact, T.J. Imberger, chairman of the committee organizing tonight’s Buggy Days street dance at Ritz Park, is coming off a very successful rebirth of his event in 2008. The dance had been dropped from the festival lineup for years until he and his volunteers brought it back, patterning it after the stellar BBQ & Blues concert. This year he wanted to add to that success and, in order to do so, decided to shake things up a bit. Imberger has added a mechanical bull to his lineup along with hot bands Hudson Road and Papa Sol. For $5 attendees can test their rodeo skills or simply do something different by climbing aboard the fiberglass contraption to see if they can Cowboy (or Cowgirl) up! and hold on to their hats. The photos alone should be worth the price of admission, Imberger said.
