DYBERRY TOWNSHIP,PA-- It's a never-ending effort that lasts all year long.
And today, the show begins.
"We're in good shape this year," said Roger Dirlam, president of the Wayne County Fair Board.
The 151st edition of the fair kicks off today at the fairgrounds just north of Honesdale and runs through Saturday, Aug. 10.
A major change for the fair this year is having the major musical act on the first night of the festivities.
Justin Moore will be having a live show starting at 8 p.m. in the grandstands.
Diane Mott, fair secretary, said ticket sales have been strong for the show. Fair officials added 800 seats for the concert and Mott is hopeful there will be a large crowd on hand.
More than 3,000 tickets have already been sold for the Moore show and more are available at the fair office up to the time of the show.
Reserved seats are $30 and grandstand seats are $20.
The Moore show and the two monster truck shows are the only events which require more than the general admission price to the fairgrounds.
The monster truck shows will be Thursday, Aug. 8 and Saturday, Aug. 10. Both shows start at 7 p.m.
Tickets are $12 for adults and $8 for children 12 and under.
All other entertainment at the fair comes with the general admission price of $8 per person.
That includes unlimited rides on the midway.
Dirlam said final preparations at the midway took place on Thursday, including a walk-through inspection by local officials.
