RHINELANDER - Music, fair food and family fun come together next week for the annual Oneida County Fair.
The fair starts Thursday, Aug. 3 with a procession through Pioneer Park.
The fair goes until Sunday afternoon.
Fair Coordinator Nancy Gehrig says there will be plenty of entertainment for fair-goers.
"Lot of great music. Entertainment every night. Starting Thursday evening. We have entertainment both on two different areas. We have a beverage garden area that we have music on," said Gehrig.
Entertainment highlights include an ABBA tribute band and The Hand-Picked Bluegrass Band on Saturday night complete with a chicken dinner put on by CT's Deli.
Gehrig says this year they're trying something new.
"We have a pallet… a recycling pallet contest. We're looking for people in the area to build new items with the pallets," said Gehrig.
Competitors with the best pallet creations will get gift certificates from local businesses.
The fair will also be hosting the traditional ugly lamp contest as well.
