Wednesday was moving in day at the 100th Kewaunee County Fair at the Fairgrounds in Luxemburg. While crews erected rides along the grandstand, young and old alike brought their cows and goats and chickens and other animals to the various exhibition barns to prepare them for judging.
Two well-known country bands are scheduled grandstand acts during the fair.
Diamond Rio is scheduled to perform at 10 p.m. Friday. Marty Roe, Jimmy Olander, Brian Prout, Dan Truman, Gene Johnson and Dan Williams have sold more than 10 million albums, won a Grammy Award, a Dove Award, amd are six-time CMA or ACM vocal group of the year award winners.
Ricochet will perform at 9:30 p.m. Saturday night. Since their debut single, “What Do I Know,” in 1996, the band’s distinctive musical style and intricate harmonies earned them the recognition as one of the most popular vocal groups in country music, and almost 20 years later, they have a reputation as “The Hardest Working Band In Country Music.”
The Luxemburg Implement Farm Tractor Pull is scheduled at 7 p.m. Friday night at the grandstand, including statewide Hot Farm Smoker Classes, and the Impact Survival Series is scheduled at 6 p.m. Saturday.
