Trackside and Grandstand tickets are on sale now via the website. It is best to check for availability soon.
         On Thursday August 7, don’t miss what promises to be Monster Truck history, with the always popular world-famous KSR Monster Truck Show featuring the all new electric Big Foot. This year Jim Kramer comes back to drive the new Odyssey battery operated Big Foot in an epic race with XPD, the local favorite.
      Other favorites of fair-goers are the competition events with the Demolition Derby Friday August 1 at 7:30 p.m., the Tractor and Truck Pulls, Horse Pulls and Harness Racing - all are shows in themselves. "You’ll be on your feet rooting your favorite on to the finish line." said Fair  officials. Between shows, tour the Midway for thrilling rides, fair snacks, treats and favorites for all ages. The barns and pens are a great place to take the kids to see the animals.
