Champaign County Fair July 20, 2006

The fair starts tomorrow, which can only mean two things: eating lots of fair food and being outdoors enjoying the area.

The website for the county fair is here:

Click here for a list of events/entertainment for the fair.

I plan to stop by the fair at some point and check it out. For you country music lovers, there will be NO country music act performing this year. The first time the fair has been without such an event in a really long time; at least according to WIXY.

Other highlights include: demo derby, classic/custom car show, monster truck show, rodeo, motorcycle races, and a truck/tractor pull.

The fair costs $5 for adults and kids 12 and under are free. There is no cost to park either.

So get on out to the fair and check it.

Feel free to chime in with your favorite fair food, event, or other news/stories relating to the fair.

[…] This is a good time to be in East Central Illinois, as we have the Champaign County Fair and the World Freefall Convention going on at the same time. […]

I wouldn’t recommend the CC Fair. I would rather go to the Illinois State Fair. ’nuff said on that. FF Convo is a neat event. I wish they would incorporate more aircraft as part of demos.

Yes, I’ve been contemplating a visit to the State fair this year. I haven’t been to the state fair in years.

I think this year the newest aircraft (for jumping purposes) is a DC-9. I guess its different from other planes they jump because it’s jet-powered versus the traditional propellor style aircraft.

Honestly, I don’t know why it would make any difference what you fly up in, because you’re jumping out of it anyways.
