Spencer Fair Brings Family Fun this Weekend
Thursday, August 30, 2012
"I think we have been successful because we gear our entertainment toward the family," Alan Walker with the Fair said. "We don't try to compete with other entertainment venues and types in the area, but we do provide an environment where the whole family can have fun, with plenty of things for kids to do."
Among those activities available for kids are magic shows, puppet shows and the chance to get up close and personal with some farm animals. As for those animals, that's the other part of the fair's appeal, its agricultural roots.
"We try to market our fair two ways, and one of them is the family fun aspect," Walker said. "But the other side of it, and I think the reason we have not only survived, but thrived, for over 120 years, is we try to maintain, in this modern day of iPhones, our agricultural heritage."
That agricultural heritage will be on full display in the Fair's rabbit showing, sheep shearing competition, and blacksmith demonstration. But it isn't all kiddie and farm fun, those looking for some excitement can head to the Fair's popular demolition derby, truck pulling competition and motorcycle show.
"This year I would say our highlight is the music," Walker said. "We have two great tribute bands coming, and it's going to be a lot of fun."
