County fair prepared for opening

St. Joseph County Grange Fair officials are poised for what they say will be seven days of fun and family entertainment, as the annual event begins this weekend.

During their media day event Thursday, officials gave an overview of the 2023, week-long fair that starts Sunday.

“Hop On Over” is the theme of this year’s fair. Sunday’s opening day features a number of 4-H events, live music and other attractions. Rides will not be available until Monday.

Christina Yunker, fair manager, said gate admission is $8 for adults and children 12 and younger are free.

Meanwhile, Skerbeck Entertainment Group is back and will offer rides. Single-day ride wristbands can be used any day and are $25 if purchased before Sunday. Mega Bands are $100 and are good for unlimited rides every day, except for the ride Top Gun.
