Entertainment for this year's fair is starting to pick up steam. I hate to mention some things we're working on, in case they fall through. But I just can't stand it, so here's a couple of things I think we are going to get! Pig Racing! Yes! These little porkers tear around the track at top speed, winner gets an Oreo and soft serve ice cream. The audience is organized into teams, supporting the different compigitors. As if that's not enough... Pedal Tractor Pulls! Kids compete by pedaling mini John Deere tractors pulling a trailer filled with weights. It looks easier than it is, and it looks like total fun. Of course we'll have all the local bands we can get performing on the West Lawn, but this year, Oran is putting together a huge shade structure so you don't have to bake while you listen. By the way, no news on if we will have an opening act for Trailer Choir, let alone who it might be. You will be the first to know.
