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.
The monster trucks arrived at the fair and packed the grandstands with spectators, who cherished the earsplitting noise and plumes of dust. For more than an hour, the crowd cheered the humongous vehicles as they jumped, spun and crushed.
The Clark County Fair draws to a close this weekend. Visitors can attend the free monster truck shows starting at 2 and 6:30 p.m. on the Grandstand Stage on both days. The always entertaining dock dogs competition also takes place, with the finals beginning at 5 p.m. Sunday. You can discover cowboy tricks inside a Wild West town and haunted gold mine, visit with the little animals at the petting zoo, see circus acts, or explore commercial and community exhibits.
