GREENUP The Greenup County Fair will kickoff Tuesday and continue until Sept. 3.

Admission will be $10, and children 3 and under will be free. A demolition derby at 7:30 p.m. Saturday will be the warm up for the week of rides, food and entertainment.

“It’s always been a really good event for us, and it brings a large crowd,” said fair director Jay Sizemore about the derby. More than 30 cars will be incorporated into the event.

Opening ceremonies for the fair will be at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, and will be followed by the Miss Greenup County Fair Pageant at 7.

Sizemore explained the fair grounds have received many improvements over the last few months. New barns and a new agriculture building will house livestock shows and even a few concerts. There will also be new entertainment this year including a petting zoo and a chainsaw artist.

The Greenup County Fair Gospel Sing 7 p.m. Thursday, and will feature the Old Town Gospel Heirs and Looking Up. The fair will wrap up next Saturday at 7 p.m. with lawn mower races; an event Sizemore said has grown over the years.

“It’s turned into something really big,” he said.
