It looks like this year’s Franklin County Fair will lead off on Saturday, Aug. 10, with a Ranch Rodeo. The fair itself will be packed with a variety of events, from the rodeo to the bull bonanza to entertainment.
“There apparently is a conflict with other regional motocross events on Aug. 10. So it was decided to go with the ranch rodeo instead of the traditional motocross. The rodeo is being organized by area residents Burke Smith and Tana Beckstead. It will begin at 7 p.m. in the rodeo arena,” Fair Committee Chair Wes Harris said this week.
“We will have a good week that starts on Monday, Aug. 12, with lots of things that should appeal to everyone.
Laura Roberts, in charge of entertainment, said a set schedule for entertainment and acts has been pinned down.
On Wednesday, Aug. 14, hypnotist Chris Mabrey will return. He has performed at the fair previously. He will start at 7 p.m. at the pavilion, said Roberts. She said the next day the Hershey Kisses will sing at the pavilion at 1 p.m. At 2 p.m. kid’s games will be held in the grassy area, just off the pavilion. A Wii dance-off will begin at 3 p.m.
At 5 p.m. the Lemmon Sisters will sing at the pavilion. A Pinewood Derby will be held at 6 p.m. in the pavilion. At 7 p.m. Preston Pugmire will be in the arena and demonstrate sound-looping music. He will be followed by Mabrey at 8 p.m.
