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.
