Cass County Fair Starts This Week

The 167th annual Cass County Fair gets underway this week. Fair Board President Gail Peterson tells WSJM News the animal competitions and displays start Friday, and the opening day for the events is Sunday, featuring the parade at 5 and a street legal tractor pull at 7. This year’s theme is Fair-A-Tales Do Come True.

“The fair has something for everybody,” Peterson said. “People come back to the fair, and whether you’re ten or you’re 90, you cokme back and see your old friends and memories and everybody has a good time.”

Peterson says they expect around 50,000 people from Sunday through August 4. The carnival will open at 5 p.m. Monday with the Super Kickers Rodeo set for 7. Next Tuesday will be more tractor pulls, while Wednesday brings a performance by country singer Drake White. The demolition derby is Thursday, and the fireworks will be Friday.
