The 2015 Hickory American Legion Fair is September 2nd-7th at the Hickory Fairgrounds. The theme is Supporting Our Farms. Advance tickets are now on sale.
Each year more and more farms are lost to the rising cost of supplies or development. Our fair supports the Catawba County School FFA Classes and 4-H Clubs with various events throughout the year. They also participate in the fair.
Rides will be FREE from 5 – 6 pm ONLY. After 6 pm admission will return to the regular rate of: Age 0-6 FREE; age 6-17 $5.00; age 18 & up $7.00. Rides will be $1.25 per ticket with special rates of multiple tickets. On Friday, regular admission and ride rates apply.
Senior Citizen Day will be Friday, 4 September beginning at 12 noon until 5 pm. There will be several ground acts performing for them.
Advance tickets are $5.00 each and are on sale now at Medical Village Pharmacy on Fairgrove Church Road, Observer News Enterprise Office in Newton and three locations of Sig’s Tire: uptown Hickory, Startown Road, and St. Peters Church Road, Conover.
