Hedrick Petting Zoo & Pig Races

 

HEDRICK PETTING ZOO AND PIG RACES PRESENTED BY JAMES RIVER EQUIPMENT

Joe and Sondra Hedrick have all kinds of animal attractions at their ranch just outside of Hutchinson, Kansas – and Salem fairgoers are lucky that they bring their unique petting zoo to town each summer.

Kids of all ages have a rare chance to get up close and personal with camels, donkeys, Pygmy goats, llamas and an assortment of other animals. It’s an exciting and educational experience for each and every fairgoer.

Along with the zoo come the famous racing pigs. A Salem Fair favorite – pigs with names like Lindsey Loham, Hama Montana, Snoop Hoggy-Hog and Oprah Swinefry – shoot out of the starting gates and barrel around the race track just to get to the finish line where a fresh Oreo cookie awaits the winner!

It’s fast fun for the entire family!

Dairy Farm on Wheels

DAIRY FARM ON WHEELS

Get a taste of the country right in the middle of the city as the Salem Fair once again presents the Dairy Farm on Wheels – Small World of Agriculture. Kids and adults will feel like they’re down on the farm in this educational exhibit.

Disc Connected K9's

 

DISC CONNECTED K9'S SPONSORED BY MORGAN GRIFFITH

World Champion Frisbee Dog Team – Featuring 5 different world champions, including the 2008, 2010 & 2014 Open World Champions and the 2012 & 2013 Pairs World Champions, 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. Their routines are choreographed to music, defy the normal relationship between man and canine; and leave even the oldest of children with a smile on their face and in their heart. To make it even more interesting, all of the dogs are “rescue” dogs, meaning they have come from either abandoned, homeless, sheltered or humane society backgrounds. Their individual stories are almost as interesting as their performances. We promise you will be laughing and clapping in awe at the tricks these dogs perform.

Butterfly Encounter

THE BUTTERFLY ENCOUNTER

The Butterfly Encounter is not only an interactive, walk-through exhibit, but it also provides educational demonstrations. Visitors will get to see the life cycle of a butterfly from the egg to the adult butterfly. They will also get to learn how to fix a broken wing.

 

 

 

 

 

Hilby: The German Juggling Boy

HILBY: THE GERMAN JUGGLING BOY SPONSORED BY VACATION VILLAGE

Best described as a show without boundaries, Hilby is the living proof that being German doesn’t mean you can not be funny. While being an expert in juggling all sorts of objects and subjects as well as countless circus and variety skills (such as Unicycling, ropewalking, unsupported ladder, fire manipulations and eating, balancing stunts and the list goes on and on), he really gets his audience involved and creates magical and hiliraious moments through their participation. Watch out for catapults, marshmalows, lots of velcro and the bowling-ball of terror. Hilby has training in modern dance and mime and his body is as expressive as the spoken words he speaks. Poetry in motion, a fusion of an epeleptik fit, and .... Yes all that and more..... the long and short of it is that you will love this Skinny German Juggle Boy!
