General admission will be $9 for those age eight and over while seven and under are free.

Some events that are scheduled during the fair will be held in the Sanderson Ford Arena and feature monster trucks and demo cross, Superhero Bicycle Stunt Show, Kent Family Circus, Roberto the Magnificent and a guy who climbs inside a balloon.

In addition, over 800 different livestock and animals will be available for viewing including pigs, sheep, cattle, chickens, goats, rabbits, dairy goats and turkeys.
