Wave’s editorial position:

Only in a Small Town

The Issue:

Wasatch County is about to be inundated with Fair Days activities

We Suggest:

Get out and enjoy all the community has to offer

Launching the official “Fair Days Week,” was the much anticipated Demolition Derby. The Derby, for the second year, was held over two nights - last Friday and Saturday.

A serious injury occurred at Friday’s event. A derby official, who was inside the arena behind the protective concrete K-rails, suffered crushing injuries when a derby car was pushed over the top of the barrier, causing them to fall on him.

Only in a small town will you see spectators, who could see the danger this man was in, jump the fence to help lift the car and the concrete slabs off of the injured man so EMS could treat him.

Hats off to those who helped save this man’s life!

Hopefully the rest of the fair activities will go a bit more smoothly.

Fair Days has over a full week of events ranging from the parades to livestock shows to rodeos and everything else in between.

There will be activities, contests and shows almost every hour for days and it’s all happening right here in our own back yard.

All the events will take place in and around the Wasatch County Events Complex on South Fields Road.

Don’t forget the change in the parade route on Saturday, Aug 4 at 4 p.m. The route begins by the new baseball diamonds at 300 S and 600 W, travels south around Rocky Mountain Middle School and Heber Valley Elementary School; turns east on 910 S and ends at 300 W.

This year, rather than trying to avoid the crowds and festivities, why not give the local fair a try? It might be one of the best kept secrets around.
