Every day of this July fair, families can see Birdman-3, the Barnyard Express, Prehistoric Adventures and many other daily attractions. And of course, check out the Big Rock Amusement Carnival for over two dozen great rides, including their 80-foot gondola wheel, so aptly named, Giant Wheel.

There are so many family-friendly events to try out this year, too. In addition to grandstand shows like the off road derby, rodeo and monster trucks, there’s pig races, live musical performances, a circus, live animal presentations and so much more.
