WESTON, W.Va. (WBOY) – The Lewis County Fair is set to kick off in Weston next week, and motorsports fans will have a lot to look forward to during the three-day event.

The fair announced back in August that it would not have it’s typical carnival this year due to staff shortages, and while they did try to hire a different company for the carnival, they were unable to find a replacement. Other fair event will continue as usual.

“The carnival is just a small part of what we have, we pride yourself on having motor sports, this year we’ve added the UTV barrel racing, our burn out contest is always fun, mud bogs, demolition derby, as well as adding the bouncy houses for something for the younger kids to be able to participate in,” said Jessica Luzader, Lewis County Fair Board Treasurer.

More events could be announced on the fair’s Facebook page closer to the event, but the following events are currently scheduled to take place at the WVU Jackson’s Mill Air Strip, according to a release from the City of Weston.
