The 33rd annual Collier County Fair will open Thursday for a 10-day run with more than the usual fair fare.
You will have your midway with the carnival games, the food and the thrill rides along with the livestock shows, a truck pull, a demolition derby and bull riding.
Then there are the special events with their own unique, local flavor such as the Collier County Dance Contest and the Miss Collier County Fair Sweetheart Contest.
Variety is the name of the game again this year at the entertainment tent, which will host singers, dancers and a plethora of performers including the banjo champions of Kentucky and Indiana, plus — and you’ve got to see this — Stage hypnotist Terrance B and Hypno the Dog.
The fairgrounds open Thursday at 6 p.m. and will be full tilt through Feb. 15.
Gates open on Saturdays and Sundays at 1 p.m. and weekdays at 6 p.m.
There are special days planned for senior citizens (Feb. 7) and members of U.S. armed forces (Feb. 8). The annual Midnight Madness promotion is Feb. 13. On the following Saturday — Valentine’s Day — you can get a special deal if you get married at the fair.
There will also be a “Bike Night” — no parking fee that day for motorcycles — and a “Ladies Night.”
General admission prices will be the same as last year: $8 for adults, $4 for children 6 to 12 and free for children 5 and under. Mega-passes are jumping $2 this year — from $18 to $20 — but that includes admission and unlimited rides.
The Collier County Fairgrounds are on Immokalee Road, 10 miles east of Interstate 75.
