Family entertainment, rides, games and plenty of animals are on the lineup for this year’s Lucas County Fair, set to open on Monday, July 12 at 3:00 p.m. and wrap up on Sunday, July 18.
“Obviously, last year we didn’t do much as far as grounds entertainment,” fair board president Shane Warner said. “This year, we have a lot more grounds entertainment, and to make it easier, parking is free.”
Much of the entertainment is geared toward children, include Dino-ROAR, a magic show, the Buckeye Pedal Pull and Luau Logan’s “Tropigal” Revue.
With 12 4-H clubs in the county, as well as Scouting organizations, other activities will be planned for children throughout the day, Warner said.
Animal lovers will enjoy watching the shows for horses, pigs, goats, fowl, rabbits and cows in the arenas or perusing the barns. Ultimate Air Dogs is back this year with several shows on Friday through Sunday, giving local competitors a chance to show their dock-jumping ability.
At night, local musicians will take the stage, including the Journey tribute band New Frontier on Friday. Adults can join some challenges with the cornhole tournament and karaoke tournament.
Stop by one of the food trucks on the grounds to refuel, or visit the 4-H Café, located in the Junior Fair Building. Open Monday through Sunday, breakfast is served from 7:00 to 11:00 a.m. and lunch from 11:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.
Free admission to the fair is extended to first responders on Tuesday, July 13 and veterans and seniors on Wednesday, July 14.
Admission is $7.00 for ages 13 and older, with 12 and under admitted free. All entertainment is included, although rides and games are separate.
