Adams - At 5 p.m. on Aug. 4, the sun stood strong in a blue clear sky, the aroma of smoked pork, freshly battered corn dogs, french fries, and fried bread dough filled the air, truck-hauling trailers rumbled through Bowe Field entrance gates, and the 32nd annual Adams Agricultural Fair was officially underway.

The grounds filled quickly with fair-goers anticipating the evening's scheduled entertainment. A "cruise-in" kicked off at 6 p.m. after about 15 classic, customized, or vintage vehicles arrived. The County Line band began performing their lively style of country music and the dancers wasted neither time nor toe-tappin, tune; a tented dance floor found itself literally underfoot as soon as the band hit the first notes.


Dancers took to the dance floor when the County Line band began to play.
Floral arrangements, crafts, fresh and canned vegetables, homemade wines, quilts, paintings, and other items lined the shelves and tables erected inside the exhibition hall. Blue, red, yellow and white ribbons covered numerous entries, designating first, second, third or fourth place awards.

A self-proclaimed psychic set up shop along the fair grounds and numerous vendors offered a selection of wind chimes, jewelry, craft items, and other goods. Games and activities for children were set up as well.

Truck pull truck


The evening's main event was a truck pull. Competitors and spectators gathered at the pull pit to await the sounds of straining engines.

Saturday's events include the 10:30 a.m. crowning of the fair's prince and princess, an 11 a.m. pony/horse pull, a 12:30 p.m. firemen's muster, a 1 p.m. magic act and a 2:30 p.m. performance by Terry A La Berry and Friends. Music is scheduled to begin at 7 p.m., with Minor Setback providing the entertainment.


"Katelyn" and "Brittany" staffed a Joanie's ice cream trailer at the fair.
Sunday's events include an 11 a.m. ox pull, a 12:30 p.m. Dancecapade demonstration, and a popular demolition derby scheduled for 2 p.m..

Admission to the fair is $5 per adult, $1 for children up to age 12, and $10 for a three-day pass.
