Among the many fun and entertaining attractions at the Bark-N-Purr Charity Concert and BBQ Cook-Off will be a kids snow slide provided by the Gainesville Ice Company. What an experience for children who have never seen the real thing!

Topping off the day will be a concert of great country music performed by Capitol Records Nashville artist Chris Cagle.
