The Marion County Fair kicks off Friday with a full slate of events. The Clover Kids Critter Show and Pet Show highlight the morning at the Show Pavilion. The Dog Show starts at 1pm. Open class exhibits will be judged throughout the day, and livestock will also arrive as well. The winners of the Marion County Photo Contest will be announced at 5pm Friday at Dyer-Hudson Hall.
The night ends with arena-rock cover band Hairball at the grandstand. The doors open at 3pm, with the concert starting at 7pm. Marion County Fair Board member Dan Findley says the group has a big following and was a great act to land. The KNIA/KRLS Big Red Radio will be broadcasting live from the fair all day.
