BLOOMSBURG, COLUMBIA COUNTY (WBRE/WYOU) — The 168 annual Bloomsburg Fair is now officially at the halfway mark until it’s over, but that doesn’t mean there isn’t still plenty to do and see at the fairgrounds.
Tuesday, September 26, is “Student Day,” at the fair, as all students ages 13-18 will be admitted to the fair for free. Also, $1 of every $8 general admission ticket purchased is being donated to the Ronald McDonald House of Danville.
Along with the fried food, vendors, games, rides, and fun at the Bloomsburg Fair, there are shows scheduled as well.
The Montgomery High School band will be playing throughout the day and Oscar the Awsome Ostrich will be making his rounds greeting visitors.
Brad Matchett, Comedy Hypnotist will also be performing twice during the day, as well as, Rick K. Roadtrip and Nashville Music Company, with a fiddle contest at 6:30 p.m.
Bullride Mania will be going on inside the Weis Grandstand, as doors open at 5:30 p.m. and the show begins at 6:30 p.m.
