Blue Oyster Cult to perform Sunday night
The first weekend of the Clark County Fair is coming to a conclusion, but there is excitement planned all the way until closing time.
Oh, and then there will be seven more days of the fair.
For now, we celebrate Day 3 of the fair. Here are some of the highlights when Fun Meets Farm on Sunday, Aug. 6:
Don’t Fear the Reaper. Just come enjoy the music as Blue Oyster Cult takes the stage at the grandstands at 7 p.m. A ticket to the fair is all that is needed to watch the show in the grandstands. VIP and reserved tickets are available at an added price, too.
The Washington State Fiddle Championships will conclude with two performances on Sunday. The first goes from 10 a.m. until 12:30 p.m. Then another performance goes from 2 to 6 p.m.
There is a Diaper Derby contest at 11:30 a.m.
We do not expect to see any babies in the hot dog eating contest. But we do anticipate a lot of hot dogs to be consumed. That event is at 1 p.m.
A special kids rodeo takes place at 5 p.m.
Of course, there are also the featured events every day at the fair this year. They include the Wizard’s Challenge, opening every day at 10 and open until the fair’s closing time. The Fun Zone for children goes from 10 a.m. until 9 p.m. DogTown opens at 11 a.m. and closes at 7 p.m.
Curly the Camel and Friends, Butterfly Adventures, and the Bee Barn are open for much of the day. Plus there are several shows a day for the Pirate’s Parrot Live Bird Show.
There are plenty of other music options throughout the day, as well as shows from hypnotist Jerry Harris, and Magician Adam the Great, and Professor Smart’s Science Show.
Plus, clowns, jugglers, comedians and more will be “strolling” around the fairgrounds all day.
