“Divas Through the Decades” is a musical tribute to some of the most influential female vocalists in American pop music, featuring songs from the 40’s, through today’s current hits. The group has performed all over the country including many state and county fairs, corporate and private events, as well as performing on NBC’s, “America’s Got Talent” in Hollywood CA.
The Diva’s stage show is filled with electrifying vocals, cutting edge choreography, great costume changes, and a high energy performance that is second to none! Their musicianship offers unequalled authenticity as well as tons of fun! Not only will you experience iconic music and incredible singing and dancing, you will find comedy and sentiment throughout the performance as you witness the girls getting the audience involved and participating in the show! There is truly something for everyone in this timeless production.
We all had such a fun time at the Tractor Show last year, Why don't we do it AGAIN?!
Tractor Show starts at noon on Wednesday, July 20th, and goes through Sunday, July 24th.
Any tractor or implement made before 1980 is welcome. Pre-register to ensure you reserve a spot. (You may register upon arrival, as well.)
There will be prizes for several different divisions. One of which, will be "People's Choice". We're working on organizing a "Tractor Drive” through the Grandstands during an intermission of the Demolition Derby.

Sit yourself down, and prepare to be entertained! Bert Davis, the Coppertown Clown is here! He's armed with a wacky sense of humor and a wonderfully trained group of dogs and performing in front of a large rodeo crowd is ‘old hat’ for this veteran entertainer, rodeo clown, barrelman and specialty act. His stage is a rodeo arena and his cast of players’ bark and howl; his quick wit, award winning comedy routines and ability to interact with a crowd offers up the promise of tear rolling laughter for his audiences.
Bert Davis, often dubbed the “Clown with all the Dogs” reached the third round in the TV show: America's Got Talent; they were the only animal act to make it to Las Vegas in 2010. Known as the “Muttley Crew” this act features ten rescue dogs, adopted by Bert and his wife, Frannie, all of whom are superbly trained tricksters.
The Kids Fun Zone will include: Multiple Bounces, Bungee Jumper, Mini Ferris Wheel, Swing Ride, Whizzer, Tubs of Fun, Airplane Ride and more!
Get ready for NASCAR RC Racecars, Inflatable Sports Zone (basketball, baseball, football), 10-Gun Laser Tag!

The local FFA Chapters are planning a FFA Heifer Show & Sale at the Marias Fair. This is first annual, of what many hope to be a yearly event! All FFA chapters in the 4-County area have been invited to participate.
Each FFA chapter has the opportunity to bring one halter-broke, bred heifer to the fair. These heifers, in a class all their own, will show on Thursday the 20th, after the 4-H Steer Show. Then, each heifer will be auctioned off in front of the grandstands before the PRCA Rodeo on Friday evening. EVERYONE is invited to attend! Top bidders will be winners of some fine high quality females! No need to bring your trailer or lead rope, the FFA members will arrange for transportation of the animals to your front door (or summer pasture if you prefer).
The Demolition Derby returns to the Marias Fair! This year we are hosting a 'Chain & Bang' style derby. This creates added opportunity for those interested in running a car in the event. The cars are not to be heavily modified and are more or less a simple stripped-down stock car, with driver protection. We call it “Chain & Bang” because the doors, hood and truck will all be chained shut, rather than welded. All things considered… BANG is still the name of the game! Are you coming out to watch or are you taking part in the demolition? Your choice!
