Demolition Derby in town for two performances
Wednesday at the Clark County Fair is for the wise generation as well as for those in the mood for some chaos.
It’s Prime of Your Life Day Day at the fair, also known as Senior Day.
It is also the day when the Demolition Derby comes to Clark County.
Here are some of the highlights for Wednesday’s edition of Where Fun Meets Farm at the Clark County Fair:
The grandstands had concerts over the first four days of the fair, then a rodeo on Tuesday, but now starts the motorsports portion of the 10-day run of the fair.
It’s time for the Demolition Derby, which will have two shows on Wednesday. The first starts at 2 p.m., with the second show at 7 p.m.
Over at DogTown, there will be an encore presentation of a few special guests. On Monday, K-9 units from the Clark County Sheriff’s Office and Vancouver Police Department put on a demonstration. Well, they are back on Wednesday for another appearance, at 5:30 p.m.
Of course, there are also the featured events every day at the fair. 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. Curly the Camel and Friends, Butterfly Adventures, and the Bee Barn are open, too. Plus there are several shows a day for the Pirate’s Parrot Live Bird Show.
