FRONT ROYAL -- The 54th Annual Warren County Fair will feature a week's worth of attractions and performances.
While home economics entries will already be accepted today, and the fair's pageants are set for Sunday, the events get into full swing on Monday.
New attractions will include the Midget Smackdown on Tuesday, and new performances will include "Memories of Elvis" from Michael Hoover on Wednesday, comedian Gallagher on Thursday, country music star Neal McCoy on Friday, and Bill Pinkney's Original Drifters next Saturday.
"We are very well-prepared," said Loretta Herrell, Warren County Fair administrative assistant. "The community has responded very well in presold tickets."
The fair will feature stage entertainment every night, and for the first time, motorsports each night as well.
Traditional Warren County Fair events will also take place, including livestock shows, all-ages beauty pageants and the Miss Warren County pageant.
Motorsports attractions will include drag racing, a demolition derby and "Monster Truck Madness."
This year, families can buy a ticket that allows them to be at the fair all week for $25. The weekly ticket includes most attractions and performances, but not rides or food.
There are also five other options for ticket-buying in advance that range from $10 to $20, and include different combinations of performances, and some include reserved seating.
"The most important thing is making it accessible and financially good for the families who want to come out," Herrell said.
Herrell said the Warren County Fair usually draws between 18,000 and 23,000 guests each year.
