It's almost time for the annual Edmonson County Lions Club Fair, which has been scheduled for September 5th through the 14th. The theme of this year's event is "Educating our Future." The Edmonson Voice is proud to be the media sponsor for the fair once again.
Some changes have been made to this year's fair, which include going back to only two weekends of activities for 2019, as well as two demolition derbies on different nights.
Local pageants will officially kick off the fair at Edmonson County High School on Thursday, September 5th at 7pm. Admission is $10 per person. Pageants will continue the next night, Friday, September 6th, also at ECHS at 7pm. Admission is also $10 per person. For more pageant info, please call 270-784-8520.
2019 Edmonson County Fair Pageant Rules and Info:
The carnival will be available on the first event at the fairgrounds, which is Saturday, September 7th for the first of two demolition derbies featured this year; however, there will be two different costs for this night: a $10 admission for the derby event (12 and under are free) and a separate $10 charge for the carnival (all ages). For demolition derby info, please call 270-246-1202.
According to the Lions Club, the purpose for this is due to the large majority of derby attendants not taking part in the carnival. In years past, the agreement with the carnival provider required the Lions Club to pay half of the gate to the carnival each night, which made it difficult to cover costs of the derby itself. The Lions Club is a volunteer organization where none of its members are paid. All proceeds raised from the fair go to county charities and causes, as well as covering costs of the fair and fairgrounds.
Monday, Sept. 9th will feature the Edmonson Count Homemaker Baby Show at 6pm, admission is $5 per person. No carnival is available on this night. For more baby show info, call 270-597-3628.
Wednesday, Sept 11th will feature the carnival back in action at the fair for "Carnival Family Night," which will feature $10 armbands for all ages.
The Mud Run will be featured on Thursday, Sept. 12th at 7pm, which is similar to a mud bog; however, a run is designed to see how fast vehicles can make it through a mud track. Mud Bogs are designed to test whether or not a vehicle can make it through the mud, period, and if so, how quickly. Admission is $10 per person and includes the carnival.
Edmonson County School Day and the annual parade is scheduled for Friday, September 13th. Parade begins at 9am from ECHS and parade participants can begin lining up at 8am at the high school. Fair Day for students will run from 9am-3pm and armbands are available for $10 each. Later that night at 7pm will be the Mud Bog. Admission is $10 per person, which includes carnival rides.
The fair will conclude on Saturday, September 14th with the second Demolition Derby of the event at 7pm. Admission is $10 per person and includes carnival rides.
For all other fair or parade-related questions, please call 270-597-6623.
