Today is Give Back Day from 7 a.m.- 2 p.m., with free admission to the fair with donation of a canned good for Preble County Foodbanks. Amusement rides on the midway open at 1 p.m., and wristbands will be sold for $18 all day.

Tonight’s featured event in the grandstands is the week’s second demolition derby, which always promises to be a bigger hit than the first, with derby lovers from all over flocking to see the damage drivers can do to the cars they’ve prepped for the big event.

For another sort of fun, the Kiddie Tractor Pull will begin at noon in Bruner Arena.
