Gates will open at the fairgrounds at 1608 W. 16th St. — which is next to Lincoln Park and William R. Fairchild International Airport — at 8:30 a.m. and close at 7 p.m. Carnival hours are from noon to 7 p.m.
Admission to the fair is $8 for adults, $6 for seniors 62 and older and students ages 13-17, and $5 for children 6 to 12.
Children 5 and younger are admitted free.
The Demolition Derby, which will begin at 5 p.m. in the grandstand, costs an additional $11.
Tickets for the derby can be purchased outside the yellow gate on the west side of the fairgrounds all day today beginning at 9 a.m.
The third annual Variety & Talent Show will start at 2 p.m. at the Wilder Auto Community Stage and offer two hours of local residents performing a wide variety of acts, from song and dance to magic.
Cash prizes will go to the top three contestants.
Another fair tradition is watching a veterinarian kiss a pig — this year it will happen at 1:30 p.m. today at the sheep and swine arena.
The pig-kisser is elected by those who vote for a specific veterinarian by dropping a donation of any amount in a voting box in the swine barn at any time during the fair.
The veterinarian who receives the highest dollar amount kisses a pig.
Donations go to scholarships for graduating 4-H high school seniors.
As of Friday morning, Dr. Liz Oien was leading with the highest total of donations, with Dr. Linda Allen in second and Dr. Sharon Jensen in third.
Horses will be featured at several events today.
The rodeo that began Saturday at the grandstand will resume at noon today.
At the horse show arena behind the horse barns, youth and 4-H events will include miniature horses at 10 a.m. and a horse trail competition at 12:30 p.m. today.
A 4-H horse costume class, which will feature fancy and silly horse and rider costumes, will be at 3 p.m., followed at 5 p.m. by a horse and rider pie-eating contest.
The Rowdy Referees game show will be at 1 p.m. and 5 p.m. at the KidZone.
Two acts will fill out the final day on the Wilder Auto Community Stage: the Happy Soles dancers at noon and the Hodori Little Tigers' Korean Martial Arts Demonstration at 5:30 p.m.
Sunny Farms Center Stage's last acts will be the Young Fiddlers at 11 a.m. and Guardian Elephant at 1 p.m. and 4 p.m.
