The most fun filled week of the year in Coles County had something for everyone!  Eight days filled with Exciting Carnival and Games, Horse Racing, Livestock Shows and Competition, Arts and Crafts Exhibits, Tractor Pulls, Demolition Derby, Queen Pageant, Bands, Bull Riding, and much much more. We used to carry on a tradition that was gong strong since 1854!
