It's an opportunity to help the victims of the Black Forest Fire and enjoy some live music at the same time.

It's all taking place at the Wonderland Ranch located at 8798 Hodgen Road from 11:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. today.

Eleven bands are scheduled to play on two stages. There will also be activities for kids, a petting zoo, volleyball, horseshoes, food, drinks and much more.

If you haven't already purchased your tickets, you can buy them at the gate for $25. Admission is free for kids under 12-years-old, firefighters and Black Forest residents who lost their home in the fire. Parking is free.

Organizers say all the proceeds will go to help residents impacted by the fire.

Tri-Lakes Cares is accepting donations of caned goods, clothing, personal hygiene items, household items, and monetary donations.

The event is a joint project of the Black Forest Acoustic Society, Tri-Lakes Cares and the Wonderland Ranch.
