PRINCETON — There’s magic and excitement in the air at the 159th Bureau County Fair in Princeton as Magic Matt presents his Family Fun Show.

It’s all part of the fair’s free entertainment schedule for the whole family, and is presented by Central Bank, Marquis Energy and Variety Attractions.

Magician and Balloon Artist Matt Scherer has entertained audiences in the Chicago and Midwest area for more than 20 years. He has been featured at the Brookfield Zoo’s Holiday Magic Festival, the Illinois State Fair and many other events.

Matt will present family fun shows multiple times each day that contain lots of audience participation in magically illustrated stories and routines. He also strolls the midway with balloon artistry to make it a full day at the fair.
