A sure sign we're in the midst of the Frog Days of Summer, the opening of the Boonville Oneida County Fair.  The 126th edition of the fair is themed, "Magic Is In The Air."  The fair runs Tuesday, July 22 through Sunday, July 27.  Click for a schedule of events at this years' fair.

While the fair officially opens Tuesday the 22nd, activities begin Monday with the talent show in the grandstand at 11 a.m.  Fair gates open every day at 8 a.m. and kids days will be Tuesday and Friday all day.  That means kids can get wrist bands for $20 and ride all the rides throughout the day.  There's also kiddie tractor pulls at 11 and 2 on Tuesday and a bike give-away both Tuesday and Friday.  The Coleman Brother's Midway opens at noon both days.
