The Traveling Wall Faribault group is bringing an 80 percent to scale replica of the Vietnam Memorial to the Rice County Fairgrounds at the end of August, and to support that endeavor, the group is hosting a five-band extravaganza and fundraiser on April 23.

The fundraising event begins at 11AM on April 23 with a motorbike ride. There also will be a classic car show at the Faribault American Legion from 12-3PM. The Five Band Extravaganza will feature music by Mr. Peabody, J.A.W.S, the Mark Allen Project, the Ridge Runners and Drive South. There will be food and beverages available for purchase. There will be door prizes and raffles. Help support these great efforts to bring the Traveling Vietnam Memorial to Faribault and plan to attend this great event. Tickets are $20 to partake in the motorbike ride and enjoy the music, and $10 to listen to the bands only. For more information on this event, and the Traveling Wall coming to Faribault, visit
