Bureau County residents have two big events set for Saturday.

The annual Music on Main event in Sheffield is always a big time and includes live music, great food, cold beer and plenty of family fun.

There will be children’s water fights at the Sheffield Fire Station at 4:30 p.m. and free children’s games and a bounce house at 5 p.m., also when the food vendors and beer wagon opens. New this year will be an adult and children’s pedal pull at 6:30 p.m. and a pie eating contest at 8:30 p.m. For more information, call 815-303-6932.

Also on Saturday, the Z-Tour Bike Ride in Princeton will again be a favorite for riders and spectators alike. Starting and ending at Zearing Park, riders leave the park between 6 and 9:30 a.m. There are a variety of courses for beginning and advanced riders. The entry fee is $25 before July 19 and $35 the day of the race. Proceeds from the event go to benefit the Zearing Child Enrichment Center. For more information, call 815-875-2335.
