Casey Donahew with Stella
July 8
 8:00 p.m. - 12:30 a.m. 

 

Over the last 18 years, Casey Donahew has risen from a favorite on the local Texas music scene to a nationally hot touring act.  He as racked up 21 #1 singles on his shows sell out all across the country.  His album ONE LIGHT TOWN garnered him is #1 song "Let's Make A Love Song"  and in early 2022, he released BUILT DIFFERENT, which includes the rowdy, honky tonk single of the same name.

For Casey it has always been about the song.  Fans flock to his shows to revel in the zany, wacky tales of pot-seling grannies and shotgun-toting girls whose bras don't fit, along with the more somber stories of heartbreak, failure and redemption.  He knows how to tell a story and make the listener believe that they are right there!  

Admission - $30

Demolition Derby
July 9

If you've never been to a demolition derby it is a fun, fast-paced event.  It has been compared to legalized road rage!  The goal is to immobilize your opponent's car by any means necessary within the rules of course, and yes, there are rules!

The competitors can have easily over 100 hours into building their car, hoping to last the 10-15 minutes each round takes.  The ultimate goal is to be the last car moving.

It is a loud, hot, dirty and crazy event so please keep this in mind if you have small children.

Don't miss this smash'em, crash'em event!

The Mighty Thomas Carnival plans to return to the Pierce County Fair.  They will be ready to go on Thursday, July 7.  2020 and 2021 were challenging years for the carnival as they were unable to get out and entertain around the country as they wished.  They are happy to be back on the road, but facing the challenges of employee shortages like many businesses across the country.  The Thomas Carnival has been around since 1928 when Art B. Thomas founded it.  It has and continues to be run by members of the Thomas family.  They provide safe, clean, wholesome entertainment for your family.  Come out and stroll the midway and experience what they have to offer. WELCOME BACK!

A Look at the Rides from

2018

rollercoaster

There's a new family-friendly roller-coaster this year called the Wacky Cowboy that's expected to be very popular. The coaster is 92-feet wide and has a height of 22-feet -- so it's great for all ages. It's full of LEDs, a fancy lighting package, and the colorful cars and colorful scenery.

the Martian Maze lets children climb ladders, cross bridges, slide down slides and walk through a rotating barrel.

Fun Slide

On the fun slide, also known as the astroglide slide, or cascade slide, a rider walks up the stairs to get to the top of this slide along with a mat. The rider places the mat on the slide, sits on the mat, and slides down the ride.
