Laura Roberts, in charge of entertainment, said Al Lampkin, a “magical” comedian from the Salt Lake area, will be at the fair on Thursday, Aug. 16, for two performances at 1 p.m. and 5:30 p.m. Fish races will be held and the Worm Creek Theater group will be performing in the Robinson Building at 4 p.m., she said.
