Monday is the last day of the thr 158th edition of the Allentown Fair,
but even if you've already been there, you'll find some new attractions if you return.
The annual J&J Demolition Derby featuring The Pick Up Truck Heat is a smashing end to the festival. The grandstand event starts at 5 p.m. Tickets are $15.
The Lehigh Valley Cloggers take the stage at the Music Tent at 2 p.m., showing off the American step dance that originated in Appalachia. The Cloggers will dance to a wide variety of music, including polka, modern country and pop.
The Bobby Mercer Road Show performs his music and variety show two more times — at 4 and 7 p.m. at the Music Tent.
Most of the farm animals will be gone or leaving, but you can get your animal fix by stopping by the Big Cat Encounter, the Extreme Canine Stunt Dog Show and Robinson's Pig Paddling Porkers.
Fair admission is $6; free, under 12. Hours are 1-10 p.m. Info:
