(Le Mars) — The Plymouth County Fair, slated as the Best Five Days of Summer, begins on Wednesday, and fair board president, Rich Benson says he is grateful for the break from last week’s hot temperatures.
Benson says the fair board made a land acquisition adjoining the grounds to the east to expand on the parking space. Benson says the land deal keeps the fair board’s options open.
The fair board president recaps this year’s entertainment scheduled at the Pioneer Village stage.
On Wednesday evening, the McEwyn Band will perform, as well as the crowning of the fair queen and king. Thursday evening at the Pioneer Village stage the entertainment will be split between Due North, an acapella group, and The Nadas. Friday will feature Brent Husmann, a hypnotist, and A.C. Jones, a country singer. Saturday, will showcase the group Menace, a classic rock group, Brent Husmann is scheduled to perform again, and the feature attraction will be Country Singer Jason Pritchett. Sunday afternoon, the local group The Jammers will take the stage at 3:00 p.m. followed by the annual chain saw carvings auction, and The Browns will round out the evening. Benson highlights the grandstand entertainment during the fair.
Other entertainment venues includes a children’s stage featuring the Los Moralitos circus, and under the covered show arena will be the popular Farm Olympics scheduled for Thursday, and Impact Pro Wrestling is scheduled for Friday evening. Benson says the Plymouth County Fair is fortunate to draw people from neighboring counties, as well as other states.
When Benson was asked what is the one thing attendees to this year’s fair don’t want to miss, he responded by saying the famous round barn.
Benson says admission is the same as in the past. Daily walk-in admission is $10, walk-in season ticket wrist bands sell for $20, and a vehicle pass that will allow up to four adult passengers sells for $40. As mentioned, the fair begins on Wednesday and continues through Sunday.
