Tickets are now available for a barbecue dinner on Tuesday, Oct. 29 in conjunction with the annual Ag-Venture series at the Highlands County fairgrounds in Sebring. The event will be held rain or shine and is open to the public.

“The Night Time Ag-Venture and Steak Dinner is a great way for us to give back to the community who is so supportive of the event,” said Ag-Venture co-planner Danielle Daum. “It is an enjoyable evening of delicious food, music and entertainment, fellowship and education.”

The event will be from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. and includes music by the Shady Creek band, featuring Gary Dressel. The dinner menu will include steak, baked potato, green beans, fresh corn on the cob, roll, beverage and homemade ice cream or cookie. Meals can be enjoyed on the premises or packaged for carry-out.

Tours of the 14 Ag-Venture hands-on learning stations will be at 5 and 6 p.m. On these free tours, participants will learn what Highlands County third-grade students will experience in each of the stations while at Ag-Venture. The tours will begin at the front gate.

“No where else can you get such a great meal for the price,” Daum said. “We believe that once people take the tours and see what happens at Ag-Venture they will want to become volunteers or supporters in the future.”

Tickets for Nite Time Ag-Venture are $12 for adults and $6 for children. Advance tickets are available by calling Daum or Darlene Phypers at Happiness Farms at 863-465-2313. Tickets will also available at the gate.

Ag-Venture will be Oct. 29, 30 and 31 and is open to youngsters in public and private schools, as well as home-schooled students. Upon arrival at Ag-Venture, each student receives a brightly colored cowboy hat to distinguish their group and to set the mood for Ag-Venture.
