Action really picks up at the Lincoln County Fair today.
This includes a new feature this year, a Zip Line. Organizers are taking advantage of the space created when the grandstand was taken down.
Participants will start off more than 3 stories off the ground, and the zip line spans 200 feet. It will be available today starting at 5:30 and then again tomorrow.
The other big draw for today Vic Ferrari. The Fox Valley based band has been playing crowds across the Midwest for 25 years now. They’ll be taking the stage at 8 and will play until 11:30.
The Farm Factivity Tent and Petting Zoo will be open from 11-7. A majority of the judging takes place this morning.
Don’t be surprised to see a few robots out on the midway. The interactive, battery operated characters from TA-DA Robots will be entertaining fairgoers as well.
In its 125th year, the Lincoln County Fair remains free and will run through Sunday at the fairgrounds in Merrill.
