On Friday, July 11, there will be a tractor pull at 7 p.m., and a free watermelon feed from 6-8.

Saturday, July 12, is kids' day on the midway, with a magic show. A demolition derby will wrap up the events at 6:30 p.m.

The Iowa Kids will perform in concert Sunday, July 13, 7 p.m. at the grandstand. Also Sunday is a talent show at 2 p.m. The Fair Queen contest will begin at 8:15 at the stage.
