It's that time of the year
again. The Logan County Fair officially opens Tuesday and there is
so much to do and see that even Close Up can't tell you all about
everything. What we suggest is you and your families make plans to
visit the fair frequently. The prices are very reasonable with
season tickets at the gate for only $10.00 and single admission
adult tickets just $3.00. Car season parking is $5.00 and of course,
children 12 and under get in free.
No fair visit would be complete without an amusement park and our
fair has one of the best. Luehrs' Ideal Rides is back again and
there are many important dates for the family to keep in mind.
Tuesday, July 31, the Carnival opens at 6:00 p.m. with "Bargain
Night". All rides are $1.50 each or 16 for $20.00
Wednesday and Thursday July 30 and 31 are Ride-A Thon nights
$18.00 per person and ride any ride as often as you want all night.
The carnival opens at 6:00 p.m.
Friday, August 1st, the carnival opens at 6:00 p.m.
for Buddy Night. when two people can ride for the price of one.

For those who have served
Free gate admission to this year's Logan County fair is being
offered to all who have or are currently serving in our Nation's
Armed Forces on Tuesday, July 29th. All of the armed
forces veterans are asked to assemble at 6:30 p.m. in front of the
grandstand for a photo.
After the picture, but prior to the queen pageant, the Logan
County Inter-Veterans Council will provide the Color Guard for
opening ceremonies at 7:15 for this year's fair. This year is the 6th
year for the veteran's photograph and many veterans have mentioned
that it is a prized possession.
And they're off
Here it comes right around the corner. What we are talking about
is the Logan County Fair's harness racing Friday, August 1st,
Saturday, August 2nd, and Sunday August 3rd.
The races will be held at 1:00 p.m. each day.
This year's races will provide race goers with exciting colt and
filly races. All three days of racing have a large combined purse.
The Logan County Fair is also home to the Downtown Classic, held on
Sunday, August 3rd, and remember the track at the fair is
no stranger to the record books. The grandstand is free in the
afternoon so come on out to the races and pick your favorites.
