There is always good things for ladies, there’s candles, jewelry so come out and join us and we’ll have a great time at the Sheriff’s Patrol Home & Sports Expo.

“State National Kiddie Tractor Pulls are Saturday and the Grand National Kiddie Tractor Pulls Sunday. We have entertainment all day on Saturday. Starting at 10 a.m. we have K9 from the Sheriff’s Department, a do-it-yourself bird house building for the youth at 5 p.m. We have Who Dey from the Cincinnati Bengals here from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturday and we have the 5678 Dance Studio performing at 7 p.m.

“Come and see the vendors before, in between all those things and the great food from the Sheriff’s Department. They are going to do breakfast this year so we have breakfast, lunch and dinner served by the Sheriff’s Patrol the whole time that we are open on all three days.

“They will have their chili, walking tacos, pies, cakes, cookies and we have two vendors that are going to be on the outside – Poor Betty’s Elephant Ears, Funnel Cakes and Adam’s Fruit Bowl. You can come and you can walk through everything, you can eat, you can enjoy and visit with everybody. It’s just like a mini fair right here at the Great Darke County Fairgrounds Beef and Dairy Pavilion.
