Kids Day at 173rd annual Lorain County Fair

The 173rd annual Lorain County Fair is Aug. 20-26 at the fairgrounds, 23000 Fairgrounds Road in Wellington.

Kids Day — scheduled for 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Aug. 22 —  is new for 2018, featuring roving entertainment on the midway such as a juggler, a stilt walker and a balloon artist.

At 1 p.m., 3 p.m. and 5 p.m. near gate 3 is a Kidbucks Game Show.

At 2 p.m. in pavilion 2 is an ice cream eating contest, followed at 4 p.m. by a joke telling contest.

Some of the many activities sprinkled around the fairgrounds include a spinning demonstration at the sheep barn, cookie decorating in building 26, float a clay boat challenge in junior fair barns, face painting, crafts and a kids’ fire obstacle course in building 50.

The Lorain County Sheriff’s Office will create child identifications.

Of course the animals, rides and fair food also are available.

Entry into the fair is $5. Children ages 8 and younger are admitted free.

Of course, since Lorain County Fair is the second largest county fair in the state, plenty of activities for all ages are listed on the schedule, such as free admittance for senior citizens age 65 and older, as well as veterans and military personnel with identification on Aug. 23.
