SERVING Tlir. PHOPLE OF HUNTLEY SINCE 1960 ^\}t JHuntlej) jfarmsiitie UPS 580-360 THURSDAY JULY 24,1997 - VOLUME 37, NUI^BER 16 - HUNTLEY, ILLINOIS TWENTY-FIVE CENTS McHenry County Fair 1997 Begins - July 30 tliru August 3 Will 1997 mark the last year that the McHenry County Fair is held on its traditional site at the corner of Country Club Road and Route 47 in Woodstock? Right now, no one knows for sure. But what is an uncontested fact is that this year's fair - which runs from July 30 through August 3 ~ will be every bit as big, and offer every bit as much family fun as fair goers have come to expect. "There still seems to be a lot of confusion about this year's fair," according to fair President Ron Hansen. "Everybody seems to know that the county has sold some of the land that we've used over the years. But a lot of people don't realize that the sale won't become final until after this year's fair is over. If then. "As far as this year's fair is concemed, nothing has changed." 4t^t\ addition to the traditional .^Vdway attractions, horse shows and livestock judging, this year's fair will feature Paul Revere and the Raiders on Friday night with the Coasters, the Drifters and Platters taking over the main stage on Saturday. The Silhouettes will entertain Thursday night free of charge through the courtesy of the Chicago Tribune. The popular truck and tractor pulls will be staged on Sunday morning with the traditional demolition derby set to wind things up on Saturday night. "One of the things that makes our fair a little unusual is that we still have harness races," Hansen pointed out. The trotters will be running on Wednesday and Thursday. Other attractions will include everything from an antique tractor display to chainsaw sculptors Tim and Karen Baker who will carve a variety of life-size figures from otherwise ordinary logs. "Despite the uncertainty over where next year's fair will be held, this year's fair is healthy and promises to be every bit as exciting as any we've ever held," Hansen said. For more information, call the fair office at 815-338-5315 between 9 am and 5 pm Monday through Friday.
