The fair’s famous chicken dinner will be earlier this year.  It will be a tailgate Bar-B-Q chicken dinner with all the fixings for $8 - from 11:30 until 3:30.
Other activities will include a doggie parade at 1:30 as well as raffle prize drawings at 3 p.m., with tickets sold throughout the day.  There will be a special raffle prize of a 5.3 cubic foot freezer (perfect for small spaces) with tickets sold separately.
