In a few days, the Lawrence County Fairgrounds just outside of Proctorville will be overcome with the smell of cotton candy and Polish sausages, the many sounds of livestock shows and, most importantly, the sight of children of all ages having the time of their lives.

The 2001 version of the county fair kicks off this weekend and, as in years past, fairgoers of all ages can expect to find something that suits them.

No matter what your taste for entertainment is, you are likely to find it at the fair. Organizers have put together a package of attractions sure to suit all.

If it’s action you want, you won’t want to miss NCW professional wrestling on Sunday night, the three demolition derbies slated for Monday, Tuesday and Saturday evenings or the rodeo on Wednesday night.

Have a taste for music? If so, you won’t want to miss the Stevens Sister’s concert on Friday night. Mountaineer Rambling will be the opening act. Also, Nite Shift will perform at the grandstand on Wednesday and there will be a gospel sing on Sunday afternoon.

Most importantly, don’t forget to support the Lawrence County 4-H and FFA members at the livestock sales. Small market animals and tobacco will be up for auction beginning at 7 p.m. Friday evening while the large market animal sale will start at 10 a.m. Saturday morning.

And, as always, the fair is a great place to visit with friends and make new acquaintances as well. Be sure to take some time out of your schedule to go to the fair this year. We’ll see you there!
