Welcome To the 2017 Lexington Community Fair!
The summer highlight for our hometown is quickly approaching!!! All-the more reason, to boost this town wide social event. There are endless ways to create memories with your children, your friends, your classmates and all members of our community. From live music and turtle races, to the aroma of funnel cakes and blocks full of talented vendors; we are focused on “Fun”!!! After all, aren’t those fun summer nights some of your favorite small-town memories?
This year marks Lexington Community Fair’s 9th Birthday. That’s a reason to celebrate all things Lexington!!!! Preparations have been in the works for more than a year to make our celebration memorable from beginning to end. With this year’s edition of Lexington’s official end-of-summer festival, historic downtown Lexington will come alive the week of August 20 to 26th with the sights, sounds, lights, laughter and fellowships of the Lexington Community Fair.
This year’s festival promises to be even more exciting than last year’s with returning events like the Recycled Fashion Show, Soap Box Derby, Lip Sync Talent Competition. Elk’s 749 Duck Dash and Cardboard Races and the Old-Time Fiddler’s Contest. Many of the usual activities for young and old are also back for fair-goers enjoyment. Don’t miss the parade on Saturday, August 26th at 11:00 a.m. in downtown Lexington. Headlining this year’s Lexington Community Fair Parade as Grand Marshall’s are Carly and Shelba Davidson. This year’s parade promises to be even more entertaining with the return of the crowd-pleasing Ararat Shriners of Kansas City, with their array of clowns, tiny cars, motorcycles and classic cars. This year’s parade theme is “EXPRESS YOURSELF”. Design your entries to express your personality, your business or just come up with something wacky. We want to see who YOU are, Lexington!!!! Here’s your chance to, EXPRESS YOURSELF!!!!
There are plenty of activities for children, including the carnival, The Kid’s Community Fun Fest, Kiddie Parade, Frog and Turtle Races and the Ping Pong Ball Drop just to name a few! Other events are fun for everyone such as Stage Shows, Washer Tournament, The Strutt Your Mutt Dog Show, The Baby Show, Pool Tournaments, Beer Garden, Horseshoe Tournament, etc (Please check the Schedule of Events for time and locations of all activities.) Look for new and exciting events like the Kid’s Night at the Races, the “Try To Stay Dry” Beach Towel Volleyball and the sure to be a big hit the “Adam Wyatt Outlaw Country Music Show”. And of course, no festival is complete without the large number of arts and crafts booths and the delicious aroma of food from the many vendors and local restaurants.
As always, our fair would not continue to grow without the many hours that our “Valuable Volunteers” give to us every year! Our fair officers and committee members contribute may volunteer hours and host many fundraising events to continue the progress of our fair. Another important part of our fair is our many sponsors. Year after year we have individuals, groups and businesses sponsor our many contests and help cover major expenses that we have during fair week. We, the Fair Board, extend a warm “THANK YOU” for your continued support and would like to extend a “VERY WARM WELCOME” to attend our Festival. Thanks also goes to the Lexington News Staff for their efforts in advertising and promoting this event. Special thanks goes to Gary Worth for creating our Facebook page and Website (www.fair.visitlexingtonmo.com). and to all those who have attended and supported past festivals and made it the success that it is today.
We invite you to visit Lexington for a fun-filled and exciting series of events that will prove Lexington is the place to be the 4th week of August 2017. Walk around, visit the carnival, and take in some of many entertaining events planned. Most of all have a great time.
