Fair time, fun time!

The 158th annual Bureau County Fair opens its gates this week with Midway rides and carnival games, corn dogs and lemonade shakes, livestock barns, fine arts entries, grandstand entertainment and much more. Among the special events for the week are Senior Citizens Day, which is today, Thursday; followed by Friday evening’s grandstand show with country star Justin Moore; Saturday’s tractor/truck pull; and Sunday’s annual county-wide worship service and demolition derby.

The Bureau County Fair offers lively entertainment as well as the opportunity to sit in the shade, have something cool to drink, and visit with friends. Held at the Bureau County Fairgrounds on West Peru Street in Princeton, the Bureau County Fair is a great way to squeeze one more celebration into summer.
