2015 Perry County Fair


The 2015 Perry County Fair kicked off on Thursday of last week at the Perry County Park in Hazard.

The three-day event offered those in attendance a number of activities and types of entertainment, including lumberjack demonstrations, free swimming at the Perry County pool, and live music from local performers.

The Battle of Leatherwood reenactors came out to the fair to show a dramatic skirmish.

Smoke filled the air on all three days of the fair as the reenactors took the field.

Attendees to the fair were also treated to live pig races and a petting zoo, both of which are Kentucky-run businesses.

The zoo offered llamas, baby camels, sheep, and goats to spectators waiting for the next pig race to get going.

Local artists and crafters set up at the fair, and were able to sell their wares to those visiting the fair.

A hot rod show was held during the fair, showing off many locally owned cars, trucks, and motorcycles.

The fair also hosted a 5K Glow Run.

Fans of pro-wrestling gathered at the Fair Friday evening to watch some local talent in the ring.

Bluegrass Championship Pro Wrestling wrestlers performed for the crowd on Friday.

Many local artists took one of the two stages at the fair, including Midlife Crisis, Whitley Tate, and, pictured here, Stephen Patula.

Some more local stars were the headliners for the fair. Country band Halfway to Hazard took the main stage Friday night to put on a showstopping performance.

Fans gathered on a grassy hill in front of the stage for make-shift arena seating.
