153rd Wayne County Fair
Fun for the whole family
The 153rd Wayne County Fair is getting ready to start up again, taking place August 7 through August 15.
“There's a little bit of something for everyone,” said Roger Dirlam, president of the Wayne County Fair Board. “We have a good lineup of shows.”
The pay-one-price of $10 a person includes parking, small stage shows, most grandstand shows and rides. Wade Shows, Inc. is providing the midway amusements, which are available starting at noon.
“Where can you go for $10 and ride the rides all day?” Dirlam stated. “They open at noon and run until 11 p.m. You can go on the rides for 11 hours, see all the shows, the animals and everything that's there. “It's a great thing.”
Some of the shows include the Demo Derby, the horse pull, the woodsmen's competition, tractor pulls, truck pulls, monster trucks, harness racing and a performance by Sour Bridges, followed by fireworks.
On Tuesday, August 11 at 8:00 p.m., country artist Chase Rice will be taking the main stage. Tickets are $30 for reserved track seats and $20 for grandstand seats. Tickets can be purchased at www.waynecountyfair.com and at Dirlam Bros. Lumber in Honesdale.
New this year is a bigger kiddie land.“We have more rides for smaller children,” Dirlam said. “When you come in the gate it starts with the rides.” “From the grandstand up are bigger rides for kids and adults.”
“We have around 28 rides total,” Dirlam stated. “There are a few more than there were a year ago.”
“Everything will be good as long as the weather holds up,” Dirlam stated. “We're hoping for a good year.” Crews started setting up for the fair Monday. Dirlam said the rides were set up Tuesday and Wednesday.
“Come out and have a good time at the fair,” Dirlam said. “Come out and see everyone.”
