The Clark County Fair will have a couple new activities for attendees this year, including the return of a crowd favorite.
The fair gets under way at 4 p.m. today at the Clark County Fairgrounds with the Open Pleasure and Fun Horse Show, followed by the Open Beef Show at 5 p.m.
One of those new additions is The Martin Family Circus, which is a family of six performing songs by classic artists such as The Beach Boys and Johnny Cash. The group includes Paul Martin, a Winchester native and former bass player for the Oak Ridge Boys, and his wife, Jamie, with their four children, March, Kell, Texas and Challant.
Melissa Clark, president of the Clark County Fair Board, said this will be the first time the group has performed at the fair, but they have previously performed at the Pioneer Festival.
The Martin Family Circus will be performing at 7 p.m. Wednesday, June 19.
However, Clark said she urges people to come out for the Old-Fashioned Fair Day, which is being resurrected.
“We had it several years ago and we’re trying to have it back again this year,” Clark said.
