With only a very short trip home after the Canadian tour, Restless Heart and their cohorts, Blackhawk and Little Texas, make the long trek to California and Oregon to close the month of July.

The first stop is July 20 in Oroville, Calif., at the Feather Falls Casino. The show starts at 8 pm in the Cascade Showroom. Tickets for the 900 seat auditorium are $35/$25 and going fast. http://www.featherfallscasino.com/

For Restless Heart fans who want to introduce great music to the under 21 crowd, gather up the family for the Merced County Fair July 21. The grandstand show is free with fair admission of $8 for adults and $3 for children. Make a day of it with hands-on crafts and demonstrations, cooking contests, quad races, bull riding, carnival rides, a petting zoo, demolition derby, exhibits, a livestock auction, food and fun. http://www.mercedcountyfair.com/pages/fair.html

The guys will just miss “Tough Enough to Wear Pink?” day at their next stop at the Linn County Fair in Albany, Ore. For any fans who are going to the fair a day early to catch Neil McCoy’s show, the dress code is pink as part of the National Pro Rodeo Association Tough Enough To Wear Pink? Campaign. McCoy is the national spokesman for the campaign which raises funds for breast cancer diagnosis and treatment. At the fair, all funds raised will go to the Samaritan Albany General Hospital, Women’s Imaging Center, which has a target grand opening of January 2007. During the Linn County Fair, anyone wearing pink on July 21 will be counted with the Northwest Community Credit Union, Coastal Farm and Ranch, and NW Natural donating to the new Women’s Imaging Center on their behalf.

They may miss the opportunity to be counted in the pink brigade, but the guys should arrive July 22 in time to catch the Equine Day events at the fair. Who knows, maybe one of them could be talked into being a jockey in the Wild Horse Racing before going on stage at 8:30 pm. http://www.linncountyfair.com/
