Strolling and grounds acts come to the 2022 Fair
August 4, 2022
Spencer, Iowa — A talking plant, a one handed juggler, and frisbee dogs are just a few examples of the more than $180,000 in entertainment that will be offered FREE to fairgoers during the 2022 Clay County Fair powered by SMU, September 10-18.
“One of the Fair’s best traditions is giving you free entertainment around every corner,” said Fair Manager Jeremy Parsons. “We’re excited this year to present a great combination of Fair favorites and brand-new acts.”
Disc Connected K9s will perform three times daily in the southwest corner of the fairgrounds by the Farmers Bank Stage. This internationally acclaimed professional Frisbee dog touring show is comprised of the largest collection of the best frisbee dogs on the planet. All of their shows carry a message of fun, athleticism, canine bonding, and promote dog rescuing.
Traveling his way around the fairgrounds is The Bubbler, Sept. 10, 11, 17, and 18. New to the Fair, he will be found in various places filling the air with bubbles bringing joy to the young and old.
Also new to the Fair is Plant Guy, a talking plant that will bring hilarious plant-based humor to everyone’s Fair experience. He will be found in various places around the Fair and is sure to be the funniest plant anyone has ever talked to, Sept. 10-18.
Returning is Farmer Bob and his tractor, loaded with antique equipment and other items fit for a true farmer. He will be strolling around the fair daily, Sept. 10-18.
Another new strolling act is Dale Jones, One-Handed Juggler. Comedy juggler Dale Jones has been called the most unique juggler in the world with good reason. Jones invented an entirely new way to juggle in order to compensate for his right hand (which he injured severely at age eight). Featured in both “People” magazine and “USA Today,” the International Juggler’s Association has touted Jones as one of the world’s best jugglers despite his disability.
