TGIF – Benton County Fair Friday Schedule
Today (Friday) is "Military Day" at the Benton County Fair and MIX 94.9 will be there 'live' for much of the day and evening.
Stop by and say "Riverbats Rock", and you'll get two tickets, and two "Golden Scoops", for the River Bats Diamond Dig this Saturday night. The scoop gives you the opportunity to head out onto the infield after the game and dig for a $1K diamond ring!
Jen from The Morning MIX kicks things off at 10am - then the Ty James Traffic Jam pulls in at 3pm for a live Ty's Teaser - then Jade opens up the doors to "Club Mix" from 7-10pm. We're right next to the Value Connection trailer right at the main entrance. Make sure you ask the folks in the Value Connection booth about the FAIR ONLY SPECIALS.
The kids are going to love all the animal shows and exhibits on Friday, and there are a few activities that they can participate in, as well. Of the animal shows - the coolest one may be the ""Small Exotic Pet & Cat Show" on the Cottonwood Stage at 9am.
Your kids may not ever want to leave the Activity Area on Friday. That's where you can find; the Reptile & Amphibian Discovery Zoo, lots of Military Days Activities, and the YMCA Kids & Family Boot Camp.
