As the 142nd Fayette County Fair quickly approaches, look for the Record-Herald’s complete preview of the event inserted into Wednesday’s edition.
Once a year, the county fair brings this community together to celebrate our youth, see the sights, enjoy a multitude of attractions, eat the delicious food, and socialize with our fellow residents. Our fair preview special section strives to provide you with a little slice of what’s to come next week.
Inside the section, you will find: what you can expect, what’s new on the fairgrounds, this year’s entertainment, the new junior fair schedule, a preview of the competition for fair queen, a harness racing history lesson, and more.
For instance, this year a new Wiener Dog race will be held on Wednesday, July 21 and the usual harness racing events will take place next week as well as on Saturday, July 24. Other events include staples such as the Smash It Demolition Derby, truck and tractor pulls, and a rodeo.
Of course this also means a week full of junior fair exhibitors competing for top prizes in shows for hogs, sheep and more.
All of this begins on Sunday, July 18 with the grand opening ceremony — free of charge for those who would like to attend. The event will be held at the McDonald’s Grandstand at 2:30 p.m. and will see the new Fayette County Fair Queen crowned out of a field of four applicants.
See this and more in the section on Wednesday and we hope to see you at the Fayette County Fair!
