Get your cowboy hats and plaid shirts ready, because the Great Lakes Agricultural Fair will kick-off at the Pontiac Silverdome Sept. 2-5, replacing a summertime tradition vacated by the Michigan State Fair.
And while certain agricultural fair standbys will be present — think carnival rides, livestock animals and educational displays — Silverdome general manager Grant Reeves says 2011’s summer event will offer some new experiences outside of the fair’s rural perception.
“We’ve purposely designed this event to help merge both rural and urban cultures,” Silverdome general manager Grant Reeves said.
say music will also be a big part of the four-day fair with each day
having a musical theme. Friday will be R&B/hip-hop day, Saturday
will be country music and Sunday classic rock. Monday there will be a
battle of the bands competition.
