There are no Monday blues today at the Elkhart County 4-H Fair, with the coolest forecast so far during the fair, nearly all the 4-H animals on the grounds, fun rides, great food and this year’s concert by country superstar Trace Adkins.
The heat advisories of the first few days of the fair are gone, along with the chance of rain. Today the National Weather Service predicts a high in the mid 80s with a nice breeze — in other words, perfect fair weather.
Today is also disabilities awareness day, with special events from 10 a.m. until 2:30 p.m. in the Heritage Park area of the fairgrounds Skill events run from noon until 2 p.m
Harness racing continues today in the grandstands starting at 11 a.m.
It’s a wristband day for rides, with $25 wristbands sold from 1 p.m. until 9 p.m., and rides open from 1 until 11 p.m.
For something completely different, check out Britton Pankratz, a yo-yo artist, who will perform at the Heritage Park Stage at 5 p.m. and again at 7 p.m.
There are still a few tickets available through the fair app or the website. Those $35 tickets get a reserved track seat for the show. Of course, as always, grandstand seating is free on a first-come, first-served basis.
