Free entertainment will fill the grounds at the 2012 "Discover the Greatest" Clay County Fair. The US Cellular Plaza will host free comedy and strength acts, while magic, comedy and animal performances will take place at various locations.
"One of my goals is to literally have entertainment around every corner at the 2012 Fair," fair manager Jeremy Parsons said. "Fairgoers won't have to look hard once they enter the fairgrounds to find entertainment that will interest everyone."
The US Cellular Plaza and grounds acts are part of $110,000 in free entertainment offered to fairgoers at the 2012 Clay County Fair.
The Awesome Ag Show returns in 2012, using storytelling and magic to show how Iowa's number one industry, agriculture, affects everyone's lives. Performances will be held daily.
Fairgoers looking for "non-human" fun will have two opportunities daily. Wildlife Wendy and her birds provide an up-close and personal encounter with the physical abilities of toucans, macaws and other tropical birds. The Australian outback will come to life at the Aussie Kingdom. The educational and interactive show will introduce the audience to kangaroos, wallaroos, wallabies and baby joeys.
Two Fair favorites will be found strolling the grounds daily. Farmer Bob and the "World's Funniest Tractor" will keep people of all ages laughing, while the high-tech Rock-It the Robot will interact with fairgoers in his unique style.
