      Wapello County Fair begins Wednesday

      Wapello County Fair setup is almost complete.

      The Wapello County Fair Board is working hard getting everything ready for all the excitement to kick-off tomorrow.

      The festivities begin at noon with a harness race followed by a queen and "little miss" contest, and a night of free entertainment. The events all take place at the Wapello County Fairgrounds in Eldon. Admission at the gate is free, and shows at the grand stands such as the demo derby and impact-pro-wrestling are $5 for kids and $10 for adults. People can come out and enjoy delicious fair food, 13 carnival rides and a variety of games.

      â??[The] fair board has been working hard getting the grounds cleaned up, getting water holes filled in trying to make sure that they've got everything ready for everybody that's coming down--vendors, fair-goers, just trying to make sure we've got everything ready for the big event,"

      The Wapello County Fair will hold a Country Music Concert with Greg Bates and JT Hodges Saturday, and the events will wrap-up Sunday.
