Looking for something to do this evening?
Here are some of the top events happening at the Clark County Fair today:
•6:30 p.m.: Dish of the Day. Clark County residents compete to see who can come up with the best recipe using pork and a second category dubbed “A Taste of the Unexpected.” And the best part? After the judging, audience members can try samples of the dishes. But they go fast, so get there early! Contest is held in the Arts & Crafts Building.
•7 p.m.: HOT 102.9 Local Talent Showcase Series. A new offering at the fair brings together pre-screened candidates who will display their rap and hip-hop skills for judges. The Clark County Fair wanted to add something different this year, organizers said, and attract fans of different kinds of music. >>MORE DETAILS: Homegrown, national talents take the stage at Clark County Fair
•All day: For many fairgoers, the best part is the food. And who can resist fried cheese? Add that to some tasty bread, pizza sauce, Italian meats and you’ve got the makings of an amazing sandwich. Check out the Springfield Clark County CTC food truck run by the school’s culinary students for this must-do at the fair. >>RELATED: Clark County students bring tasty food truck flair to fair
