CADIZ – Come one, come all to the 166th Annual Harrison County Fair on June 2-6 in Cadiz!
This week kicks off a full slate of fun, food and, of course, farm animals, at the county fairgrounds along Grant Street. Fair Board President Don Jones said there is definitely something for everyone.
“We tried to make improvements with things for the kids,” he said, adding that many of the offerings are available Thursday through Saturday. “There has been a lot of preparation and everybody’s worked hard.”
Among the new features are mechanical bull rides, a zip line, “people-powered” horses and miniature bumper cars by Kurt James Fun and Games, a petting zoo, a Nationwide NASCAR racecar, wood carvings by Jeff Roscoe, extended truck and tractor pulls in lieu of a demolition derby and the addition of motocross racing.
