The 164th Muskingum County Blue Ribbon Fair is less than two weeks away.

Fair Board President, Darrell Cubbison, completed a drive around the grounds at the end of last week and says he hasn’t run into any problems just yet. The location of where each concession stand will be placed has also been mapped out and marked on the ground’s blacktop.

"We’re like athletes, preparing ourselves and getting ourselves ready to put on a big show, " says Cubbison.

Cubbison says he does expect a record number of exhibitors this year, with more than 1,700 available for fair-goers to look at.

"That’s a large number for a county fair that we have here, but that’s what it takes. The exhibitors make it, " says Cubbison.

The big draw though still lies with Lady Antebellum, who will be performing in the grand stands Friday, August 20th. That show is completely sold out.
