WARSAW — Kosciusko County Fairgrounds will host three major events this weekend but could use some volunteers to help prepare and support activities.
This weekend looks like a busy one at the fairgrounds off Smith Street in Warsaw.
Cirque Italia returns with a new water circus, which starts Thursday night, June 17, and continues through Sunday, Father’s Day.
Parking is $5, and ticket prices range from $10 to $50. Tickets can be ordered online.
A video preview of what fans can expect is available on the county fairgrounds’ Facebook page.
On Friday and Saturday, harness racing will be featured in the grandstand in the first of three appearances this year at the fairgrounds. Tickets are $5.
The ITPA Midwestern Classic Harness Racing begins at 7 p.m. Friday, June 18, and at a 6 p.m. start time on Saturday.
More harness racing is scheduled during fair week in July and later again in September.
Juneteenth, the annual celebration of the end of slavery, will be at the Shrine Building and feature several speakers. Check out a recent story for more details. The start time is 6 p.m.
While the upcoming weekend promises to provide plenty of foot traffic, representatives of the fairgrounds said they are in need of volunteers to help before and during the events.
Fair officials said Monday they need help preparing the fairgrounds for next month’s weeklong fair and the track for harness racing.
A variety of different volunteer roles are available. Call the fair office at 574-269-1823 to learn more.
