Mineral County Fair Aug. 2-4

Round up those little cowpokes, folks!

Not to rustle cows, but to dance along with the live music fun led by Kelly Hughes at the Mineral County Fair on Saturday, Aug. 4 at 6:30 pm.

Don’t worry about Kelly wearing out, though. He will be back after the Saturday night rodeo, which is sponsored by the Superior Lions Club.

The nighttime fair entertainment will kick off on Thursday night with the “Nightliners” band. Also that night there will be competitive barrel racing.

Friday night, Jackie (Stevens) Noman, who was raised in the county’s west end, will be on stage as “Jackie Joleen and the Last Chance Band.” Plenty of singing and dancing will be enjoyed by all. She starts right after the rodeo in the arena.

Saturday kicks off the fair parade through Superior at 11 am. There will be kids’ games, live music on the green, bingo and other attractions. Don’t forget the Methodist Men’s pancake breakfast and the other nonprofit food vendors on the grounds.

Check out the quilt show, open class and 4-H exhibits in the 4-H Building, and visit the many commercial vendors in the area. Check out the 4-H stock sale in the afternoon. The rodeo performs again followed by Hughes and his band. Fair admission is free, and rodeo tickets can be purchased.

Bike raffle at County Fair

Living Water Bible Study will once again raffle off bikes and fishing poles during the Mineral County Fair on Saturday, Aug. 4 at 3 p.m. Kids can get free tickets during the fair parade or at 2:45 p.m. on Saturday in front of the bandstand, where the raffle will be held.

The Alberton Senior Center serves lunches each Tuesday and Thursday at noon.
