Jackson County Fair All This Week
There are going to be concerts, rides, grandstand events, and so much more all this week at the Jackson County Fair. First, here is some quick information: the fair starts with a preview day on Sunday, Aug. 4 and runs through Saturday, Aug. 10. It's located at Jackson County Fairgrounds/Keeley Park (200 W. Ganson St.) Parking is $5.
Now is where things get a little confusing. The price to get in is $5 for adults, $2 for children age 6 to 10 and free for kids younger than 6. However, there are a few exceptions such as: Sunday - $3 for adults, $1 for children. Monday - seniors 65 and older get in free. Tuesday - $2 for everybody. Thursday and Friday - veterans get in free. Saturday - kids 10 and younger are free.
This fair is different from previous years as all of the rides will be in one area on the new midway. Wristbands cost $25 (available Monday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday). Rides are $2 on Tuesday and $1 on Saturday.
The acts and concerts to check out this year are bigger than ever. Here are all of the acts they are bringing in: Monday - Jeff Dunham returns to the fair at 6 p.m. Tickets to the show start at $28. Tuesday - Boyz II Men, Color Me Badd and All-4-One. Tickets start at $44. Wednesday - Foreigner and Styx, few tickets remain but they start at $25. Thursday - "The Voice Competition," which will be taking place not at the Grandstand but at the Keeley Stage. Friday - Twisted P Rodeo. Saturday is the demolition derby, tickets for both Friday and Saturday are $10, or $15 for box seats.
