KYYK will be bringing in a full line-up of Texas Country Bands including Jerrett Zoch & The OSR Band, Pushwater, The Bigsby's and others. Plus special appearances by Spongebob Squarepants and Hello Kitty will be a big thrill for the kiddos!
H&W Marine of Tyler’s on-water boat show at the PALOOZA gives you a chance to check out the newest boats on the market and actually go out on the lake and try them out. Pontoon boats, ski boats, bass boats and runabouts will all be available for demo rides. Factory Representatives will be there to answer all your questions and Skeeter Pro Team members will be available for expert advice and rides in their top-of-line, professional rigs.
Come to the PALOOZA with an appetite! Lots of popular fair style foods like turkey legs, funnel cakes, snow cones and, of course, hamburgers and hot dogs. A portion of all food sales for the day will be donated to the Pet Fur People, so eat up!
