Wapello County Fair kicks off on Wednesday

It is that time of the year again for the Wapello County Fair in Eldon!

The festivities begin this Wednesday and go through Sunday.

25,000 to 30,000 visitors are expected to stuff their faces with all that good fair food. This year, chocolate bacon will be making its premiere at the fair.

And you certainly will not want to miss the musical acts on Saturday night.

â??And at 8:30 it's going to star Kip Moore and Hunter Hayes. And that is going to be big. We are selling a lot of tickets, and we've already sold a lot of tickets. But we still have tickets available. And we have standing room on one side so we cannot sell out, so everybody is welcome to come,â?? said Beverly Sloane, Wapello County Fair Board Secretary.

The fair will kick off with Harness Racing at noon on Wednesday.
