Already billed as “The Best Little Fair Around,” the Green Lake County Junior Free Fair prepares to take an “Adventure on the High Seas” from Thursday, Aug. 5 to Sunday, Aug. 8 at the fairgrounds in Green Lake.

The pirate-based theme mixes a number of kid and adult activities, while not overlooking the animal competitions and awarding of ribbons.

Thursday Aug. 5

The fair begins at 9 a.m. with an educational judging of exhibits in the Exhibition Building, open for public observation. A goat show, dairy show and poultry judging follow beginning at 12:30 p.m.

Providing entertainment for kids and adults is the return of U B the Band, an interactive live music experience that allows individuals to get on stage and sing or play the guitar and drums. Different sessions will be offered at 2:30, 4:30 and 6:30 p.m.
