Family Fun Day at the Fair

The Muttville Comix

Johnny Peers & The Muttville Comix interact with the audience during a show at last year’s fair.

You and the whole family are invited to come home to the Fair Saturday, August 1st is Family Fun Day at the 2014 Schuylkill County Fair. The day starts early at 11 AM with registration for the Antique Tractor Pull which starts the day. The Fair officially opens to the public at 11AM with the ID ME program presented by the Schuylkill County Sheriff’s Department. Protect your children by enrolling them in this very valuable program provided free by the Sherriff Department. Rides also open at 1PM and are presented by Goodtimes Amusements out of Hellertown, PA. The activities are just beginning for families where they can work together to try to build the tallest tower out of rolled up newspaper in the Tower of Power Contest.

Walk with the Tractor Parade as it makes its way through the fairgrounds with a theme of Family Fun. Continue the family fun with various interactive exhibits running throughout Saturday. Bring along your small family pet and have it compete in the Pocket Pet Contest. Make a catapult and enter it into the contest to see how far a marshmallow will travel through the air. Sit and rest a little with Big Owl around a campfire on Bear Creek Island and learn about the local Indian inhabitants of the area. Have the younger family members participate in the Kids Hay Bale Toss. Have a water balloon toss with family members. Participate in the Sack Race. Roll out the toilet paper in the Toilet Paper Toss. Scramble for pennies and candy. Listen to the

Schuylkill Got Talent. Hope for your name to be called as the winner of the “Schuylkill Gown” products basket. Then you might want to settle down in a chair to watch Ryan Pelton, the Ultimate Elvis Tribute Artist. You may just want to extend the fun for the day by moving to the grove of a few of the King’s tunes.
