Tuff Trucks and donuts highlight Day 8 of the 2023 Clark County Fair
It is not officially Homer Simpson Day at the Clark County Fair.
It just will feel like it at the donut eating contest.
The second Friday of the fair is a bit bittersweet. The day means the fair is getting closer to its conclusion. But hey, on the bright side, there is one more full weekend of the fair.
Here are some of the highlights for Friday’s edition of Where Fun Meets Farm at the Clark County Fair:
Want some wild, out-of-control racing? Head to the grandstands for Tuff Trucks at 2 p.m. and again at 7 p.m.
Tuff Trucks brings trucks (and SUVs) to a track of bumps, jumps, and a mud pit. The drivers race against the clock in this one. Which truck can record the fastest time of the day, while also getting a bit out of control with the jumps and such.
Earlier in the day, it’s that Homer Simpson special: The donut eating contest is at 1 p.m.
At 5:30 p.m. Friday, there will be another K-9 demonstration from local law enforcement. That will take place in DogTown at the fairgrounds.
At 7 p.m., look for Jackpot Barrel Racing at the Dr. Jack Giesy Arena
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.
Also on Friday, the River Divide Band is set to perform at 3:30 p.m. Dug Cox and SmokeWagon perform at 5:30 p.m.
Hypnotist Jerry Harris, and Magician Adam the Great, and Professor Smart’s Science Show also are back on Friday.
Plus, clowns, jugglers, comedians and more will be “strolling” around the fairgrounds all day.
Penelope the Clown will have a show at 1:30 p.m. Paul Isaak will have a 6:30 p.m. show featuring juggling and comedy.
