FIVE BEST BETS

Lucha Libre

Lucha Libre will take place 6 p.m. Sunday at the Coors Grandstand Arena.

Watch the luchadores: Fans of the film "Nacho Libre" can see professional luchadores battle it out during Lucha Libre. Ramses from the film will be featured.

Listen to dueling pianists: If wrestling is too much action for you, pianists will tickle some ivory and "duel" on stage. Audience members can submit song requests and sing along.

Find the best salsa: Three classes of salsa (pico de gallo, mild and hot) will be judged at the Fresh Salsa Contest. There is an adult and junior division and judging begins at 2 p.m.

See those turkeys run: Instead of "Why did the chicken cross the road," ask "Why did the turkeys run at the fair?" Attendees can see the Turkey Stampede and keep an eye out for fowl play at 2:30, 5 and 7:30 p.m. at the KC Loop.

Get your flannels ready: The Timberworks Lumberjack Show offers a blend of logging history with demonstrations and competition. Flannel shirts are a fashion must at the 2:30, 5:30 and 8 p.m. shows at Grand Avenue.
