LIMA — The Allen County Fair is continuing to offer attractions and events this year, many of them included with fair admission.
Crazy Mike V will do a comedy/magic show appropriate for all ages.
“For the finale, I do a routine where I have this dangerous build up before I find the car that this person has been helping me find,”said Mike V. “The whole audience is in on it and all of the comedy has been built around this one moment.”
Ryan Gothrup will demonstrate glass blowing. He plans to create various glass objects like animals, fish, cups and bowls.
“The whole goal is to educate people,” said Gothrup. “Glass is something that surrounds us every day, and people have no clue of how it is made.”
The DreamShip tethered hot air balloon ride is another attraction. It costs $20 to ride.
The balloon is made up of illustrations from young children through the Folds of Honor scholarship program, which helps those whose family members were wounded or died in wars. The illustrations represent the children in their ideal professions.
“I think here in Allen County, there are many people that understand and respect what our veterans have done for our country,” said Dar Hollar, Allen County Fair concessions manager. “This is a way to give back to all those men and women who have made of those sacrifices.”
