It's that time of year again.

With more than 80,000 people expected to attend over the four day period, the Shasta District Fair is one, if not the biggest event of the year in Shasta County.

Monday at the fairgrounds, folks were already arriving with livestock for the upcoming auction.

The fair kicks of Wednesday at noon which is also Dollar Day and Kid's Day.

Kids 12 and under get in free and everybody else gets in for just one dollar.

“It's a great day to come where the prices are very reasonable,” exhibits rep for the fair Chris Workman said. “We have something for everybody.”

And even though temperatures are expected to be at or above 100 degrees, Workman says it won't be as bad as it was last year.

She says this year, they're prepared for whatever mother nature throws at them.

“We've got cooling stations setup in Lassen Hall for people if they want to sit down,” Workman said. “We've got benches. We've got first aid stands there that they can visit and sit down and cool by. The animals have fans in the buildings. We had a company that donated the use of cooling coolers for the animals in the barns and stuff.”

She says the fair promises to have something for everybody to see indoors and out.

“We've got the rides,” Workman said. “You've got the commercial exhibitors in the buildings and on the grounds. You've got the jams, jellies, quilts, that in the buildings, the flowers in the buildings.”

But what would a fair be without the food?

“You've got any kind of food basically you want on a stick and deep-fried,” Workman said. “So come on out and have an ice cream cone if you're getting hot or a nice cold soda or whatever. Come on down. Have a great time.”

The fair will also have live musical entertainment every night.

This year's big headliner is Parmelee who takes the stage Friday.
