Hold on tight — this is bound to be a bumpy ride.

 

Each year the annual Clallam County Fair hosts a number of exciting exhibitions and events for the sports enthusiast and this year is no different.

 

The 4-H Western Games kick things off at 9 a.m. on Friday, Aug. 16.

 

Saturday sees the fair’s logging show at noon, followed by the Professional Western Rodeo Association at 5 p.m.

 

The rodeo resumes at noon on Sunday, Aug. 18, and the demolition derby caps the fair sports festivities with a 5 p.m. start that day.

 

Riding high with the rodeo

 

For two days the Clallam County Fair is home to riders from the Professional Western Rodeo Association (PRO-WEST).

 

The PRO-WEST menu has a number of crowd-thriller events including bareback riding, breakaway roping, saddle bronc riding, team roping, bull riding, tie-down roping, steer wrestling and barrel racing.

 

Do the Derby

Demolition derby fans need to buy an $11 ticket (in addition to regular fair admission fees), sold starting at 9 a.m. outside the Yellow Gate (west side of the fairgrounds) on Sunday, Aug. 18.

 

The Demo Derby begins at 5 p.m.

 

For information on derby entries and tickets, call Jessica Little at 477-7653. Find more information on the association’s Facebook page.
