Believe it or not, the 2017 68th annual Scott County Fair is here again. The Fair runs through Sunday, July 9 through Saturday, July 15.

Residents anticipating visits to the fairgrounds on U.S. Highway 31 South can begin salivating right now, imagining the aromas of delicious food coming from the midway and local vendors as well as the fairgrounds restaurant operated by the Scottsburg Band Parents with their daily specials and famous pork chops and other booths offered by the Scott County FFA and other organizations with food booths featuring tacos-in-a-bag, cold drinks, homemade ice cream, pork burgers and the like.

The Scott County Fair conjures up different reactions in every person, from having the chance to exhibit projects in either the 4-H or Open Class buildings and merchants setting up booths to bring their products or valuable information to fairgoers. Most importantly, it is also a time for 4-H members to exhibit their animals and prepare some of them for the annual livestock auction.

To some, the fair just means coming to the fairgrounds to visit with old friends and to make new friends while enjoying a bite to eat, watching some entertainment on the pavilion or attending one of the many grandstand attractions scheduled nightly at the Fair. This is also the time, as far as most youngsters and teenagers and many adults are concerned, to hit the midway for some exciting spinning and tumbling on the amusement rides.

The Scott County Friends of Hardy Lake will also be operating a display and booth at the DNR building as well this year with birds of prey, fish, turtles, frogs, a bald eagle, snakes, and many other mounted animals.

This newspaper staff is publishing its annual publication of the free The Daily Fair News, which will be distributed throughout the Fair Monday through Friday. The newspaper will include highlights of the events of the Fair, so visitors are encouraged to pick up copies while visiting the Fair. Limited copies of each Daily Fair News will also be available at these newspapers’ office, located at 730 North Gardner in Scottsburg.

Free entertainment will be featured at the Pavilion shelterhouse Sunday through Saturday. There will be line dancing, music, (bluegrass, gospel, country).

Fikes Fiesta Rides will operating the rides on the midway during the week of the fair. Stop by the carnival office to find out the daily discount bracelets and their costs and operating schedule. Kiddie Day will be Wednesday, July 12, from 1 to 4 p.m.

There will be no admission charged to enter the fairgrounds this year.
