Seriously, hands down the cutest thing you’ve ever seen… Strider Bike Races!

Where’s the fun without a little friendly competition?!  The Strider Bike Races are designed to provide just that.  We offer a safe, fun, and slightly competitive atmosphere where children can show off their skills in front of a cheering crowd supportive of all riders.

We welcome back Dr. Jonathan Reth, who was a cyclist on the US National Cycling Team during the 1990’s, to conduct the races.  Ready.  Set.  Strider!

Heath Johnson

On Stage: Morning

Heath Johnson is an Americana Country singer/songwriter from Spearfish, SD. He organizes the South Dakota Songwriters group and activities around the Black Hills area and puts together songwriter’s rounds for other local artists. His musical influences range from classic country, to modern Americana, folk, and red dirt music. Along with his solo shows, he is also the lead in an Americana Honky Tonk band named The Ruthless West.

Turquoise & Leather

On Stage: Afternoon

The acoustic classic country duo of Dan Coleman and Ja’net Persche are also part of the original music group, South Highway 85.  These two self-proclaimed country bumpkins from up north play some mighty fine toe-tappin’ music!

We thank these fine musicians for sharing their talent on stage at Kenadi’s Karnival with all of us! Without them we’d be listening to a prerecorded playlist, and it doesn’t like applause nearly as much as they do!


whom we thank so much for their support
