FLYWHEEL FEST - A home-grown party for our dear hootin' Annie! JUMP is hosting the 1st annual Flywheel Fest on August 7th. The festival is an opportunity to show off our amazing collection of over 100 tractors (50 on site at JUMP). But more than that, it marks the one-year countdown to our dear old Kerosene Annie's departure. She is going on an adventure, a real trip of a lifetime! While all the other tractors are a bit...jealous, we still want to make sure Annie remembers that her home is here at JUMP. After traveling to Minnesota for the Rollag Western Minnesota Steam Thrashers reunion, presenting a Rumely exposition where many admirers will tell her how great she is, and how important she has been to the innovation of tractors over the years; we want Annie to come home to Boise. So, when she returns, we will have another party - even bigger than the one this year in August. Which is why this is the first annual event. It really is all about Annie! Think of the Flywheel Fest as a Debutante Ball for tractors. Any Ball worth its weight needs a spread of food, good old-fashioned games, and great music. Idaho Bluegrass Association Bands from Idaho Bluegrass Association will be playing music from 11:00AM - 2:45PM the event in our Amphitheater. They will also have a jam session for you to bring your instrument and join in. FIBER FROLIC To make this party even more festive, the folks from Idaho Wool Growers Association and The Twisted Ewe are bringing sheep and alpacas, educational booths, wool product vendors. As well as a community art installation to JUMP for a Fiber Frolic! Fiber Frolic showcases how wool is processed and transformed into sustainable clothes and products. Learn something new at the crafting workshops in weaving, crochet, knitting...even felted soap making. Local vendors will have yarn and wooly gifts for sale too! Community Fiber Art Project: The Twisted Ewe will debut a large public art installation, created by the hands of K-12 students and
