Saturday is Family Fun Day

2015-fair-amusementWhat:              Everyone is invited to come home to the Fair Saturday, August 6th.   Saturday is Family Fun Day at the 2016 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 win the three leg race.

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.  Relay eggs with family members in an egg relay race.  Participate in the Sack Race.  Roll out the toilet paper in the Toilet Paper Toss.   Scramble for pennies and candy.   Listen to the Schuylkill County Idols.  Then you might want to settle down in a chair to see and hear David Cassidy in Concert with special guest Randy Foulke.
