The annual Overbrook Fair is scheduled to kick off its four-day run next week and will include a carnival, horse show, exhibits, parades and a rodeo.
Things will get under way at 7 p.m. Wednesday with a 4-H horse show in the arena on the Overbrook-Osage County Fairgrounds in Overbrook.
The horse show will be followed by Carnival Night, during which patrons can ride all of the rides that evening for a single price. The carnival also will be set up on the fairgrounds, located at U.S. Highway 56 and Cedar Street.
New to the fair this year will be a rodeo, which will highlight Thursday's events. The rodeo will begin at 8 p.m. at the fairgrounds. Fair exhibits also will be judged throughout the day Thursday at the fairgrounds.
A parade will get the fair under way again Friday at 6:30 p.m. The parade will wind its way through downtown Overbrook, past the fairgrounds and back to downtown. The rodeo will follow the parade at 8 p.m. Friday at the fairgrounds.
Saturday's events will round out the annual festival and are to include another parade at 6 p.m., which will follow the same route as Friday's parade.
The annual demolition derby will be held in the arena at the fairgrounds again this year and will begin at 8 p.m. The demolition derby is the last event on the fair schedule this year.
Food and an abundance of homemade pies also will be available in the shelterhouse on the fairgrounds all four days of the fair.
