July 30, 2008
IMLAY CITY— There's still plenty of outdoor fun and activity available after the Blueberry Festival winds down with the opening of the Eastern Michigan Fair on Tuesday, August 5. Gates open at noon.

The fair runs through August 9 and includes a number of popular events. Visitors can wander through 4-H livestock barns, shelves filled with projects, a petting zoo, carnival midway, vendor booths, festival food and more.

Bill Ankley and son Willie show off dairy cow one of the family’s many 4-H entries into last year’s Eastern Michigan Fair in Imlay City.

Also returning is Circus Pages with their spectacular high wire/trapeze and animal show. New this year is a music stage that will feature live entertainment all day long. A chainsaw artist will also display his talents there.

Fair Manager Ian Kempf said new rides are on the way, including Wacky Worm, a kids' roller coaster that's large enough for adults as well.

Grandstand events include tractor pulls, bull riding, Motocross, Autocross and a demolition. Each event begins at 7 p.m. All shows are included in the general admission price.

From Tuesday through Thursday, admission is $12. Tuesday is also 'Kids Day,' where youngsters get in for just $8. Senior citizens 62 and older are admitted for $8 as well Tuesday through Thursday.

The admission price is $15 on Friday and Saturday. All admission costs include parking, grandstand shows and unlimited rides.

"It's truly the best family value around with our one price gate admission, everything's included," Kempf says. "For the price, there's no place else in Michigan that offers that much entertainment."
