148th Lycoming County Fair Happens July 11 to July 21

A lowered admission price, and a special section of the fair set aside especially for children called the “Amelia Earhart Funway,” are among the new things that fair officials are proud to point out about this year’s 148th edition of the Lycoming County Fair.”

“We’ve lowered the price of admission this year from $6 to $4. Also, kids under 12 are free because we believe every kid deserves to enjoy the fair,” Lycoming County Fair President James “Rocky” Reed, told Webb Weekly. “We have a lot of new and exciting things going on this year. They Lycoming County Fair is introducing the Amelia Earhart Funway, a section of the fair set up specifically for kids. In this section there are many new attractions going on including Dino Roar, cowpie bingo, pig races, peddle tractor pulls, as well as older attractions such as the petting zoo. We have a new carnival section this year from Sunshine Shows Amusements/Carnival. We will also be having new stars on both the free stages and grandstand including Run Away June and Jordan Davis.”

And as usual, there will be various agriculture-related exhibits and judging events such as the Lycoming 4-H Youth Horse and Pony Fun Show, as many other farm livestock and displays. And of course there will be all kinds of great food on hand available to the hungry fair goer.
