See Pierce County fair sights starting Thursday

Pierce County hosts its 125th annual fair Thursday-Sunday with event-packed days starting at 8 a.m. and ending at 9 p.m. all days except Sunday, when the fair closes at 4 p.m.

Don't miss the animal judging - poultry, rabbits, horses, dairy cows and more. Get a thrill ride at the carnival and take the kids to the free Fantasy Corral animal exhibit/petting zoo.

Fair food abounds to satisfy any stomach; shop the tasty treats presented by area civic groups and service clubs.

Saturday's 11 a.m. talent show provides entertainment and displays the diverse skills of Pierce County residents. Kids will delight in a roving magician and adults can enjoy tunes played by several area bands or musicians, including Elmwood native Vicky Emerson.

Everyone is welcome to a piece of free fair birthday cake, provided by a different area bakery each day of the fair.
