The fair has arrived

CORBIN — By John L. Ross / Staff Writer

Whitley County — get ready for the fair.

Events for the Whitley County Fair kick off today.

The fair’s offerings will be held in two places — the Whitley County Extension office in downtown Williamsburg (across from city hall) and at the 3R Arena in Goldbug, owned by Wayne Perkins.

“There will be signs up telling people how to get there,” said Harry Alder, Whitley County Fair board chair.

Of course, the Farm and Home Exhibit will be open for viewing from 9 a.m. until 2 p.m. at the downtown Extension office — that happens both today and Saturday.

Other events are scheduled at the arena.

The 3R Arena is located off U.S. 25E in Williamsburg. Take the road next to Williamsburg Plastics on what’s known as “Factory Lane,” but also called Keller Lane. At the stop sign is Watt Creek Road — take a right on that road and “you can’t miss it.” The arena is on the left.

Today’s lineup offers several venues of entertainment — and all of tonight’s events at 3R Arena are free.

From 5-9 p.m. there will be an antique tractor display. Registration is required to display an antique tractor. For more information on that, contact the county extension office.

Then at 6:30 p.m., the Cornhole Tournament kicks off.

Alder said this event requires a $10 entry fee for participants, then the Fair Board adds $100 to the total. The winner of the tournament gets to take home the prize money, Alder said.

At 7 p.m., equestrians and others will be able to enjoy Phillip Perkins’ trick pony show held inside the arena.

A half-hour later at 7:30 p.m., the Antique Tractor “Slow Race” and Barrel Roll Contest begin.

But for those unable to make it to Friday’s Whitley County Fair events — the agenda shows Saturday’s lineup to be as exciting as today’s.
