Jersey County Fair President Phil Ringhausen Jr. said a fan-favorite free act, “pig racing,” will be making its return in the midway amusement area between the concessions and carnival rides. Ringhausen said there is also a “clown comedian act” taking place at the other end of the amusement area.

The petting zoo will also be back this year, and Ringhausen said the selection of animals for this year’s fair was chosen to reflect the fair’s agricultural focus.
