The Warren County A&L Fair gets under way this Friday night with the Pre-Teen Fairest of the Fair Pageant and will be in full swing next Monday night when the carnival opens.
This year's featured entertainment is country music singer Daryle Singletary. He has sung hits such as "I Let Her Lie," "Too Much Fun," and "Amen Kind of Love."
Singletary will perform at Grandstand Arena next Thursday night at 7 p.m.
"We're really pleased to be able to offer a country music star like Daryle Singletary and provide it for free," said Fair Board member Steven Helton, who spearheads entertainment.
When it comes to the popular carnival, Kissel Entertainment will be providing rides for the second straight year. Carnival promotions include a $20 hand stamp on Monday, a two for $22 hand stamp on Wednesday, a 2-for-1 ticket special on Thursday, and a $15 hand stamp Friday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
The Fairest of the Fair Pageant is another highlight set to begin next Monday night at 7 p.m. There are 61 girls scheduled to compete.
The Central Baptist Association is bringing in Christian comedian Sammy Sawyer for a Wednesday night show at 7 p.m. In his routine, Sawyer acts and dresses like the TV character Barney Fife.
An antique car show will be held at the same time as the Singletary concert in the main arena. Cars can begin entering at 5 p.m. with the show to be held from 6 to 9 p.m.
The new fair restrooms are also set to make their debut with the hope of relieving what had been annual plumbing problems.
