Letter: You won't regret going

"Risk vs. reward:" That challenge faces each and every one of us every day.

We risk air travel to reward ourselves with quicker trips. We risk planting our crops earlier to reward ourselves with a more abundant harvest.

We risk placing our investments into stock or bond portfolios to reward ourselves with a more luxurious retirement.

As always, the Pierce County Fair Committee is taking a risk. It brings in high quality entertainment each fair.

"Celebrating the 125th Pierce County Fair -- Past Memories -- Future Dreams" is the theme for this year's fair, Aug 7-10.

We are offering a pre-fair motocross, Friday, Aug. 1, starting at 7 p.m. at the Pierce County Fairgrounds Grandstand. Kicking off this year's fair is a free community talent show followed by a grand fireworks show on Wednesday, Aug, 6.

In addition to the great pre-fair entertainment, the fair offers over 10,000 youth and open class exhibits, over 100 commercial vendors, several animal shows, and a fun-filled carnival.

Free entertainment at the fair includes concerts by Vicky Emerson, D-Boys, and The Memories, also a hypnotist, comedy magic, old time western music, chain saw carving and more.

With the high cost of fuel and packed summer schedules, why not plan to stay close to home this summer -- right here in Pierce County? Come to the premier event of the summer: The Pierce County Fair.

We guarantee that the risk will be worth the reward!
