Putnam Fair continues through March 25

PALATKA – The hay bales are decorated, the midway’s twirling and the livestock are waiting to be judged as the 67th annual Putnam County Fair gets underway.

The fair runs through Saturday, March 25, at the Putnam County Fairgrounds in East Palatka off U.S. 17 South. No problem knowing where to turn — just follow the line of traffic.

Entertainment this year includes Nick’s Kids Show, hypnotist Chris Mabrey, Pak’s Karate, USA Gymnastics, Academy of Rising Stars, Klassi Tap Cloggers and Showtime USA.

Local organizations and crafters have items on display. Food booths are open throughout the fairgrounds.

A market swine show (March 21), market steer show (March 22), livestock judging contest and beef heifer show (March 23) and youth rabbit show (March 25) offer area youth a chance to show off their months of pre-fair work raising animals.

On March 24 the annual market steer and swine sale takes place. Money raised helps the young owners recover the costs of raising the animals.

Admission every day is $6 with children 5 and under getting in free. Wednesday is half price day with admission half price ($3) with a canned food donation and $9 buys unlimited ride armbands.

The fair is open throughout the day and runs to 11 each night.
