On each day of the event, fair goers can enjoy live music. Bands including Triple Nickle Band, Eric Jerardi Band and Rum River Band will play. On Sunday, Aug. 12, the fair will host Gospel Fest at 1 p.m. in the Entertainment Tent.
On Sunday night, McGuffey Lane, with special guest ReFlektion, will perform in the stadium at 7 p.m. Tickets are $5.

There will be plenty of fun to be had with the fair’s rides and games. Patrons can purchase ride tickets, or bracelets (best bang for your buck!) to use to get on the rides. There also will be a demolition derby, tractor pulls, harness racing, and the chance to win a mystery goat box - we’re intrigued.
