The 2014 Lyon County Fair is almost here.
The Friends of 4-H picnic is coming next Thursday, and after that 4-H exhibits and livestock shows start in earnest. Lyon County 4-H agent Corinne Patterson says exhibits start July 25 and continue through Aug. 5.
The Anderson Building will open Aug. 2 for public viewing and closes Aug. 7.
Grandstand events begin with ATV races Aug. 2 and continue through Aug. 16 with the demolition derby. Other highlights include mixed martial arts Aug. 9 and the Blackhawk concert Aug. 12. The grandstand events have been uncoupled from the exhibit and livestock show schedule because of conflicts with the carnival schedule.
For information about the fair, call Patterson at 341-3220. KVOE will have complete coverage of the Lyon County Fair, including reports and results from the exhibit and livestock shows and previews of the grandstand events.
