The 55th annual Newville Lions Community Fair starts today and runs through Saturday, July 12. Although the cancellations of the Miss Newville Pageant, the Barnyard Olympics and the baking contest certainly puts a damper on the fair, folks can still enjoy great food, rides, bingo, a tractor pull and the best fireworks in the area.

“The fair is always big for us,” said Dan Brant, who took over as Newville Lions Club president July 1. “It’s our primary money maker.”
