Truck Pull and Rodeo Return To Fairgrounds
The Edmonson County Lions Club Fair for 2018 has been set to run multiple weekends once again, beginning Friday, September 7th and will run with various nights and events until Saturday, September 22nd.
This year's fair will see the return of the KTPA Truck and Tractor Pull, which was discontinued as a result of low attendance over the past couple of years. There will also be an added Mud Run in addition to the Mud Bog.
Pageants will kickstart the fair as usual, and will be held at ECHS. Local and state competition winners will be chosen in various categories. The carnival will be open beginning on Wednesday, September 19th for family night and will run through the remainder of the fair.
The annual Fair Day parade is set for Friday, Sept 21st with schools dismissing for fair activities. The demolition derby is expected to be the fair's largest night and the rodeo, which was a success last year, will return as the final event of the 2018 fair.
The fair is sponsored and organized each year by the Edmonson County Lions Club, a volunteer group that contributes to dozens of local causes in Edmonson County each year.
The Edmonson Voice is proud to be a media sponsor of this local event. For more info, check out the official flyer for more.

I think it's awful that there's no carnival the night of some of the events.Alot of parents like to bring their children and allow them to ride the rides and play games during the derby.It looks like that way would generate more money.You would have the admission fee plus extra $10 per armband sold.

Sure, generate more money for the carnival group, not the lions club. the carnival gets half of the entire gate every night they are there. if you have the carnival on the demolition derby night which is the biggest night of the fair, you'd have to give half the gate to the carnival which isn't fair because 90% of the people paying to get in don't ride anything they just want to see the derby.
