2014 Clinton County Fair plans underway

DEWITT — As spring arrives plans for the 2014 Clinton County Fair are well underway. Entertainment, judges and events are being lined up. Dates have been set for Wednesday, July 16, through Sunday, July 20.

Many fair favorites will be returning. Evening entertainment will include the Garden Tractor Pull; Mutton Bustin’, Bull Riding and Barrel Races; Tractor and Truck Pull; and the Demolition Derby. Other free things to see and do will include a chick hatching display, Miller’s Petting Zoo, Farm Bureau’s “Farming at the Fair”, “I Milked a Cow”, the Painted Dragon face painter and the Truth Singers. Start preparing now to participate in some of the more than 16 free open shows and contests, which include creative arts, flower shows, Master Gardeners’ vegetable and outdoor container contests, pedal pull and Bill Riley’s Talent Search.

While you are at the fair this summer you will want to be on the lookout for the Amazing Bigfoot, Wild Bill Toady’s Reptile and Amphibian Extravaganza and balloon artist Zany Janie and her Magic Balloon Show. On Friday and Saturday nights of fair the Clinton County Cattlemen will serve a supper sandwich special.

Changes in the evening entertainment include hypnotist Jeff Michaels on Thursday. The Badger State Tractor Pulling Association will fill the skies with smoke with the addition of the Limited Pro Stock class to the Tractor Pull on Saturday night.
