Lots of great changes coming to this year's Putnam County Fair

It is almost time once again for annual family fun in Unionville.

The 73rd Annual Putnam County Fair is coming up next week, running from September 4-8.

This year, you can expect many changes, but good ones.

The demolition derby is being moved to Saturday night this year, and organizers are adding a second tractor pull event to get a bigger turnout. The other one will be on Friday.

Nashville night will be on Thursday evening with singer John Anderson.

The 4-H and FFA livestock shows will all be on Wednesday to make room for a cattle show on Thursday.

Board members say it was time for a change in the fair's lineup.

"We felt like we had the same thing going on for several years. It was a good opportunity to try and make some changes and accommodate things people asked us about in the past. I think this will help get many interested, especially the younger crowd," said Putnam County Fair Board Member Joe Koenen.

Also, new to the mix this year is a dog show.

Carnival rides and the fair food will of course still be there.
