Fair brings entertainment

Youngsters kick up their heels to music at last year’s fair.

OKANOGAN — A full line up of entertainment, for a variety of musical acts to magic and a hypnotist, is planned at this year’s Okanogan County Fair.

Most entertainment will take place on the main stage at the northend of the grassy midway-food court area.

Perennial performer, Jeremy McComb will headline at 8:30 p.m. Saturday.

McComb is a Nashville recording artist and former tour manager for comedian Larry the Cable Guy.

His 2008 single “Cold” peaked on the county Billboard charts at No. 43.

Prior to McComb taking the stage, the Company Band (comprised of Casey Martin, Kirk Gildroy and Randy Statler) will perform a blend of blues and rock music at 6:30 p.m. Saturday.

Local favorites Nicole Unser, Mood Swings and Lota Duarte are on the bill to perform Sunday morning.

Unser, formerly of Nashville now living in Tunk Valley, will also perform music for a Western church service at 8 a.m. Sunday. Al Parsons will present the message.

Other entertainers throughout the weekend include Longhorns, Jeff Martin’s magic act, Greg Johnston, hypnotists Jeff Martin, Briana Renea, Mr. Pickles Karaoke, Branch and Dean and Brittany Jean.

Other weekend entertainment includes an eating contest, historical presentations in the Commercial Building, and the queen pageant and coronation.
