Side by Side Racing comes to the grandstands on Thursday
One of the things people love about fairs is tradition.
Fans of the fair know there will be food.
They know there will be music.
They know there will be livestock.
Comfort entertainment. They love it. They know it.
But a good fair always brings something new.
This year, Side by Side Racing is coming to the grandstands at the Clark County Fair. In fact, that is one of the highlights on the Aug. 11 schedule.
Side by Side Racing involves Utility Task Vehicles, similar to All-Terrain Vehicles. Expects a lot of dirt and obstacles. There are two performances on Thursday: 2 p.m. and 7 p.m.
Oh, and fans can get rides in Monster Trucks at those shows.
Thursday also is Kids’ Day at the fair.
Oh, the Clark County Sheriff’s Office will hold a K9 Demonstration at 5:30 p.m.. This show has been going on throughout the week, but Thursday is the last performance of the 2022 fair.
The rest of Thursday’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 Pirate’s 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.
