Instead of grumbling about it, we decided to embrace whats happening, says Tim Bock, Frisco marketing and communications director. The wide-ranging events include three live bands (including a Beatles cover band), a painted VW Slug Bug that you can help smash with a sledgehammer, a costumed bike race, signature brews by Backcountry Brewery, chocolate-covered bugs, vendors selling beetle-kill furniture, a bug petting zoo and awareness training from the Friends of Dillon Ranger District.
