There's certainly no shortage of things to do at the Clark County Fair. You can gorge on food or slurp down a tasty milkshake. You can then test your digestive fortitude on the rides or maybe admire the well-groomed livestock or baby animals. There's Monster Trucks you can hear for miles, not to mention concerts featuring various rock and country music stars. And if you can't take it all in, don't sweat it because we'll have lots of coverage here to enthrall you, including Toni Woodard's blog, "It's the Fair!"
The 2013 Clark County Fair is ready to rock. Michael Jackson's infamous red jacket from the "Thriller" music video is on display, a rock 'n' roll maze is ready to explore, an interactive history of "The Institute of Rock 'n' Roll" will let folks jam on drum sets and giant keyboards, and three free concerts are ready to kick off the opening weekend.
The county fair has been a family affair for Ken and Nancy Bisbee and their five children: Vanessa, Ian, Allegra, Donovan and Josette. For 20 years, the children have entered in numerous 4-H competitions including home arts, cooking, sewing and preserving. Mom and dad are also 4-H superintendents. The kids also showed guinea pigs and dairy goats.
