Fair Board had media day Wednesday

The St. Joseph County Fair Board of Directors staged its annual media day Wednesday at the Centreville fairgrounds.

Members indicated they anticipate a well-attended fair again this year, with showcase events each of the seven days of the 162nd fair. The nightly events include farm truck pulls, Motocross, monster trucks, a demolition derby, a Beatles tribute band and country/western star Alan Jackson.

Other attractions include a mobile zoo, the return of the miracle of birthing tent and magic shows by Kandy and Co. The Elephant Encounter, a new attraction, is sponsored by the Kellogg Community Federal Credit Union and will stage its first performance Monday.

The fair, which features 67 different food-serving vendors, opens Sunday and concludes Sept. 22.
