The DeKalb County Fair will feature several exciting events at the Lion's Club Pavilion July 19th-24th including nightly pageants, the Vintage Fashion Show, and DeKalb IDOL among others.

The Junior Fair Princess Pageant will be held Monday, July 19th at 6:00 p.m. followed by the Fairest of the Fair at the Lion's Club Pavilion. The Little Mister and Little Miss contest will be held Tuesday, July 20th at 6:00 p.m. The Little Miss Princess Pageant will be held Wednesday, July 21st at 6:00 p.m. followed by the Miss Sweetheart Contest.

Shan Burklow encourages anyone interested in entering any of these pageants to register on-line. "If you need to check out pageant information you can go to the DeKalb County Fair website at www.dekalbcountyfair.us or you can go to the www.studiosixlimited.com site and either way it will give you updated pageant details for your age group. Registration is $20.00 this year as opposed to $15.00. We've had a few questions about that but it has been a bargain for years and $20.00 is still lower than any pageant around. One other change in the pageants is that DeKalb County residents ONLY may register in every single category."

Meanwhile, the Vintage Fashion Show is set for Thursday night, July 22nd following the Baby Show at the Lions Club Pavilion. "If you want to volunteer to be in the Vintage Fashion Show, you can sign up on-line or contact the Chamber of Commerce at 597-4163. We're doing decades or sitcoms this year so if you have any epic character from a sitcom or a particular decade that you want to represent or if you have a costume that you'd like to donate or wear yourself be sure to contact us because now is the time for that" said Burklow.

DeKalb Idol will be featured on Friday night following the Toddler Show at the Lions Club Pavilion. "Instead of auditioning for DeKalb IDOL, you can just sign up. We've had so many people who want to participate but who can't come out to the fair more than one night. So you can register on-line at www.studiosixlimited.com or you can register at the fair on Monday through Thursday from 6:30 p.m. until 7:30 p.m. We are not going to do text voting this year because the phone lines were so jammed last year from the voting. But we will have "People's Choice". So if you're competing in DeKalb IDOL bring all your friends and family because that crowd appeal will be part of the people's choice vote. It's a $100 prize for people's choice and a $300 cash prize for the winner" said Burklow.
