The 94th Christian County Agricultural fair is set to take place later this month on July 25th through the 29th, and will kick off the festivities with the ever popular Miss, Jr Miss, Little Miss, and Baby pageants. Pageant participation has been down in recent years, however this year the fair will rebound, with a full slate of participants set to compete.
Mike Drea, Christian County Fair Secretary and Fair Board Member says those who would like to watch the pageants can do so on the first day of the fair.
Drea says he's received word that although pageant participation has suffered in the past, the fair has a full slate of ladies looking to compete this year.
Other events taking place at the Christian County fair include 4-H shows, truck and tractor pulls, live music, and the Illinois State Championship Chili Cook-off.
