Side Shows

Around here, we’ve got real sights to behold.

 

Did you see that?! Magic and wonder wait around every corner at the Fair. It’s a real-life action adventure.

Keep an eye out for circus acts. Comedic juggling. Stunts on wheels. Hypnotism (well, maybe don’t eye this one too much if you’re not into mind control). Animals of all shapes and sizes—sometimes performing amazing feats—sometimes just looking for you to pet them. There’s even an animated dinosaur roaming around this year.

See what’s on the fairground near you. Check out the attractions.
