Cars crashing into each other a big highlight for Wednesday’s schedule
Crashes. Crunch sounds. Oohs and aahs from the crowd.
Wednesday is Demo Derby Day at the Clark County Fair.
As in Demolition Derby.
Two performances are set for the grandstands. Drivers and their smashed-up rigs will take aim at each other at 2 p.m. and again at 7 p.m.
Why? Because why not?
Crashes, especially in controlled arenas with sophisticated safety equipment, are fun. That’s why.
It is also Prime of Your Life Day, another way of saying Seniors Day at the fair.
Also returning for another performance is the K-9 demonstration by the Clark County Sheriff’s Office. That is at 5:30 p.m.
Of course, dogs are also putting on a show throughout the day with the Dock Dogs competitions.
The rest of Tuesday’s entertainment schedule includes these daily attractions:
The feature exhibit Wild Science runs from 10 a.m. until 11 p.m.
Brad’s World Reptiles goes from 10 a.m. through 10 p.m.
Butterfly Adventures is 10 a.m. until 8 p.m.
And the NASCAR Experience goes from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m.
And of course the carnival, with games and rides. The carnival opens at noon every day.
There are several Pirates Parrot Live Bird Shows on the schedule, with the first one at noon.
Hypnotist Jerry Harris has shows at 7 p.m. and 9 p.m.
There are also hobbies, crafts, and baking classes available throughout the day.
And animal showing and judging throughout the day.
