Gallia County Junior Fair fun


For the 4x4 truck pulls, contestants are split up into classes. One way that is determined is by weight; each truck crosses the scale with fuel and driver in it.


The sled, which had some technical difficulties later on during the pulls, is the critical piece to the show. As a truck moves down the track, a weight slides forward on the sled increasing the difficulty.


One of the first trucks to pull was a Cummins diesel swapped Chevy from the 1970’s.


Some of the classic carnival rides are still at the fair, including pony rides for the youngsters.


The crowd for Tenth Avenue North packed in early, filling the stage area.


One class ran heavily modified. This truck had a ladder bar frame, an aftermarket gas engine, a weighted nose, and large pulling tires.


Here a modified truck hooks in for his first pull. Unfortunately, the sled broke right at this time, and his run was delayed.


Tenth Avenue North brought a full concert to the fair, lights, confetti, and a rocking sound.


The Girl Scouts gave out awards for fair projects on Tuesday. Here Lily Hunt shakes hands with a Holzer representative.


Several locals brought out their trucks to compete in the cheater stock class, putting up clouds of smoke and plenty of dirt for the crowds.
