It’s a 4-day shebang full of 4-H events, open class shows and a variety of entertainment. The best part is that admission prices to the fairgrounds are “family friendly,” and once inside all the shows and activities are free.

The fair offers grandstand shows on at least two nights, two or three tractor pulls, a baseball tournament, horse shows, livestock shows, commercial exhibits, a midway full of rides and concessions, and local stands offering a variety of food that will leave you wanting more.
