The pulls take place in the Wilmot Raceway in front of the grandstand. Admission to the pulls is free (gate admission required). The pulls are followed by combine demolition derby, unless there is a threat of rain. Then the combine crunching will go first.
If the big iron isn’t your thing, you might want to check out the garden tractor pull. The event starts at 10 a.m. Saturday of the fair, with weigh in starting at 9 a.m.
The garden tractor pull has 10 classes, including two for children 10 to 15 years old.
Places first through sixth win cash prizes.
The Kenosha County Fair runs Aug. 13-17 this year.
