"The Augusta Futurity is an amazing family experience, and the Wrangler Family Fun Fest was created as an event for the families that attend," said Sarah Childers, an organizer of the event. "This is a great opportunity to create some memories and spend quality time with each other."

The free event will include a petting zoo, pony rides, a live bull and a mechanical bull. It will also include performances by Livingroom Legends and area cloggers. Popcorn, hot cocoa and cider will be served.

The second elimination drawing for the 9-to 12-year-old category in The Augusta Chronicle's Make Kids Count contest is scheduled to take place at noon during the event.

Those attending the Fun Fest will receive free admission tickets to the Futurity's indoor events. The tickets will be good for Saturday's events only, Ms. Childers said.

The Augusta Futurity begins today and will continue until Jan. 26. For a complete listing of events and other information, visit www.augustafuturity.com.
