The 147th Jersey County Fair starts Saturday with harness racing at the grandstand. Due to the wet track conditions, the scheduled start has been pushed back to 4pm, with the hat derby at 3. Harness racing and livestock shows usually dominate the first few days of activity, and that will be the case again this year. As has been the case the past couple of years, the harness racing program will be a single-day event.
Jersey County Fair Board President Phil Ringhausen tells The Big Z this year’s theme is “With A Song And Dance.”
