There are all kinds of new vendors at the Fair this year, including Mexi Coco with freshly made fruit flavored waters inside coconut and watermelon shells. Ever tried coconut water straight from the coconut? Now you can! And, of course, there are all the classics back at the Fair this year: Pronto Pups, cotton candy, elephant ears, and more!

6. Contests

There are the classics: cow pie (chocolate pudding) eating, milk drinking, and dancing. And also the not-so classics: siphon tube setting, big wheel racing, and veggie people making. Compete or spectate: either way you are sure to have a good time.

5. Motocross

FMX

 

 

 

 

Brigade FMX is performing in the Caldwell Night Rodeo arena this Sunday at 7pm. These daredevils perform insane tricks over giant ramps. Plus, Canyon Honda will be throwing out all kinds of free gifts into the stands!

4. Entertainment

There is some new and some classic entertainment this year at the Fair, including puppet shows, hypnotists, jugglers, reptiles, and more. Watching friends get hypnotized into doing ridiculous things is always entertaining.

3. Animals

Fair animals are the best. And this year, there is even a 4 month old baby pygmy goat to gawk at and adore. Spend some time in the livestock barns and see the 4-H and FFA kids showing off their animals that they spent all year caring for. These kids work HARD – and it shows.

2. Music
