You could go to the bluegrass fair in Lexington if you'd rather. I don't know the price of admission but the ride bracelet alone is $18. You should learn to appreciate what you have an stop being envious of what you feel you lack.
you lie as- you pay 20,00 at the gate and you don't pay nothing else unlees you eat and and a h?ll lot better and well spend money .

I just went to the bluegrass fair. The price for the rides alone was $18 like u said and admission is $6. Here's proof: http://www.lionsclubbluegrassfair.com/index.p...

That's $23 total and I have no clue if the shows cost extra.

I was in Miss Mercer Co fair a long time ago and it was fun ( Sharon Peyton won ) and she deserved it . Smart , pretty . But now , there's all these other pagents for 6 & 10 yr old girls and boys . Little babies , toddlers and they cry and are miserable . I wouldn't dare do that to my children . The moms want that more than the kids . It borderlines on parents at little league screaming at coaches . Anyway , my opinion is leave that one big pagent for the 17 - 23 yr old young women ....... Jmo.

Once upon a time the fair was awesome. As a little kid that couldn't ride the big rides I couldn't wait to grow and ride them. Haven't seen any of those rides there since back in the 90's! The majority of it is games. After paying the high price to get in and for rides, who wants to spend money on food, I don't even think about the games! My husband and I have good jobs, but I also have a brain. My kids can have just as much fun at the park and it's free. Price isn't the problem it's the price of such a lackluster event. Primarily the rides lacking. Last time I went, 2009, there was a bounce house.??? No thanks. Not that my opinion or anyone else's matter to that of the fairboard. My feelings aren't hurt in the least, nor is my wallet!

Maybe it has something to do with the fact that you were looking at the fair through the eyes of a child? To me it's amazing that people get on here and bitch, every year, about the trivial price of the fair. Then in the next breath they wonder why Harrodsburg doesn't have decent places to eat or shop.

Oh and speaking of bitching, you'll know it's October when the annual library tax posts start up. Who needs a calendar?

Wrong thread, tard. If you're too stupid to search via google.com I suggest turning your computer off and never returning.

No digger, I can remember them like yesterday. The gravitron and tilt -a- whirl and scrambler; all usual rides you see at Mercer aren't spinning around or going back and forth in the air. Any child or adult alike can come to that conclusion. Thanks for your "wisdom" though. Price doesn't matter if it is worth it, it hasn't been worth it for some time.

Do the have the space ship thing that just spins in a circle with the people inside. There's no restraints and the walls slide up when it spins. It used to have the number 5000 on it in the mid 90's. I just don't know what it was called. I used to think that was the best thing ever but now that I'm grown, it's kind if lame. Anyway, I really want a funnel cake. Is the fair and all it's expensive awesomeness going to be open today, consessions included?

In the 70s , I remember all kinds of neat rides . There was one ride in particular ( can't remember name ) but it would turn , flip, shake , and go around really fast . Scared us to death but had a ball ! We only got to go one night unlike the town kids that went 3 or 4 times . Our other " Big " time was watching Mr Cummings from the old airport, spray our beautiful tobacco wit DDT ! I don't remember the fair prices then . It just seemed like that fairground was covered with rides . Then the horseshow . I was probaly 13 or 14. All the girls HAD to have the BEST tan . Ha ! Sounds silly but just some old memories .

I can't judge the Mercer County Fair of old. I grew up in a suburb of Baltimore. I know that the county fair was always a grand affair.

I am shocked and amazed that you can't judge the Mercer County Fair of old you know about everything else. Go to the Mercer County Historical Society and catch up so you can be a know-it-all on this topic as well.

I can read a lot of things at the Historical Society, and I often do. But whereas I never attended a fair in Mercer County back in the "good ole days" I can't give a first hand account.

During the times that many of you are pining for, I was still living in Maryland.
