The Otoe County Fair kicks off with four full days of fun July 27-30, and fairgoers can expect a lot of options for entertainment.  There will be nightly inflatables and more on the fairgrounds, Pony Cycle Races, and a variety of events each night.
In the past, Thursday night at the fair meant a Veterans Parade.  However, in 2017, the Veterans Parade will lead the Grand Parade on Saturday July 29 at 5 p.m.  Thursday evening entertainment will include a Team Roping event at 7 p.m. in the outdoor arena and a ventriloquist/comedian, James Wedgwood, inside Kimmel Event Center at 8 p.m.
The Farmer Olympics will be held Friday evening in the outdoor arena (instead of Saturday as in the past), and teams can sign up for the games prior to the 8 p.m. event if they haven’t already pre-registered.
Saturday will be packed full of great things to see and do from the afternoon Tractor Show and Chicken Pulling Contest to the parade, inflatables, and Pony Cycle Races.
Later, the up-and-coming band “Broseph E. Lee” will headline the Bull Ride and Dance July 29.  Previously, the dance and bull-riding night has been on Friday, but the lineup has changed so that in 2017 the main entertainment will be Saturday evening.
The Bull Riding will begin at 7 p.m at the arena, and Broseph E. Lee will perform at 9:30 p.m.  Entry is just $15 and will include both events.
