The 2012 Clinton County, Ohio Fair officially opens on Sunday, July 8 and continues through Saturday, July 14 and will feature a variety of fun for all ages.
For the last several years the fair ran for eight days but it was changed back to seven days this year.
While the fair is not officially open on Saturday, three competitions will be held, along with the tradition of serving a barbecued chicken dinner which is being brought back this year by the New Vienna Buckeyes 4-H Club. Dinner will be served from 4 to 7 p.m. Saturday in the 4-H dining hall.
The first of three Junior Fair horse shows will be held on Saturday and will begin at 8 a.m. in the horse arena near the Nelson Avenue gate. The Senior Fair flower show judging will get underway at 1 p.m. Saturday in Expo Hall, and the Senior Fair open steer/heifer/feeder calf show will begin at 6:30 p.m. in the Livestock Expo building.
Entry will be free, but rides and vendors are not guaranteed, said Scot Gerber, president of the Senior Fair board.
