The Yuma County Fair will take place April 3-8. This is one in a series of stories about what visitors can expect this year.
There's a little something for everyone this year at the April 3-8 Yuma County Fair — including some new shows to keep visitors entertained.
“We want to offer good, quality entertainment to the people that come out for the fair,” said Eric Wofford, Yuma County Fair manager.
A new show in this year's daily entertainment roundup is “Wild about Monkeys,” featuring Kevin and Martina and their trained baboons performing fun, educational shows for audiences of all ages.
Jerry Breeden the ventriloquist is also new this year along with Terry Godfrey the magician.
Breeden and his cast of unusual characters are known for their “clean comedy” and feature musical celebrity impersonations, magical illusions and classic rock 'n' roll songs in their shows. They have performed together for audiences in eight different countries.
Godfrey incorporates magic, comedy and audience participation into his acts, which he has been performing since 1985 to audiences in 14 countries.
Circus Imagination and comedian Matt Baker are also new shows at this year's fair.
Circus Imagination teaches kids how to have fun the old-fashioned way: by using their imagination. Through acts, stories and dress-up, the crew use their imagination and creativity to put on a mini-circus.
Matt Baker, a stand-up comedian, will be performing his acts that have been featured on numerous television shows such as “Last Comic Standing” and “America's Got Talent.”
