In addition to two nights of exciting National Pro Rodeo Association sanctioned rodeo (Aug. 4-5), the fair will be presenting the Larry Bell Memorial All Girls Rodeo on opening day (Aug. 3).

The Backyard & Puzzlemania (kids interactive area)
Families can enjoy some old-fashioned backyard gaming like checkers, giant chess, badminton and more. Let the little ones play with giant waffle blocks and toddler puzzles. Explore the sensory discovery tables, try out the “Kids Fit” obstacle course and tease your brain with Puzzlemania.
