BLOOMINGTON, Wis. — A fair featuring 4-H and FFA exhibits is returning this weekend to southwest Wisconsin after a year’s hiatus due to COVID-19.

The Blake’s Prairie Junior Fair will be held Friday through Sunday, July 23 to 25, in Bloomington. The fair was canceled in 2020 due to the coronavirus pandemic.

In addition to its traditional 4-H and FFA exhibits, this year’s fair includes a demolition derby at 7:30 p.m. Friday, with fireworks to follow; on Saturday, a horse pull at 5 p.m. and live music at 10 p.m.; and on Sunday, a chicken barbecue from 10:30 a.m. to 1 p.m., a children’s pedal tractor pull at 2 p.m. and a local truck and tractor pull at 6:30 p.m.

An all-fair admission button sells for $15 before the fair and for $18 on Friday and Saturday. Daily admission without a button is $10.
