Fun for all ages is in store for those attending the annual Bureau County Fair, set for Aug. 20-24. As in year's gone by, fair-goers will see a variety of attractions — some brand new and other favorites from previous fairs. Besides all the exhibits from talented area folks, the animals shows will continue throughout the event. There will be plenty of free entertainment throughout the fairgrounds — music, shows and more. Grandstand shows include tractor pulls, The Beach Boys concert, an extreme bull riding show and the Demolition Derby. A county worship service is set for Sunday morning. As always, there will be plenty of food from fair vendors and local vendors too. And the midway on the fairgrounds will be jam packed with plenty of rides, guaranteed to thrill the most adventurous as well as those who aren't quite so daring. Every day is an armband day, where fair-goers can have unlimited rides for $20. For more fair information, see
