If you have a spare night this week, you should definitely head down to the Utah County Fair, which runs August 17-20. The Fair will take place at the Spanish Fork Fairgrounds off Main Street. It's great for a cheap night out since admission, parking, and many of the events are FREE!

Here are 6 Utah County Fair events you won't want to miss!

1. Animal Shows

There will be not one but two animal shows at the county fair. The first show, Tails and Scales, is a bird and reptile show. All About Monkeys has 3 shows a day and features a meet and greet with the monkeys after the show. You can also take a look at all the contestants for the livestock contest.

2. Oak Hill Vaulters

Oak Hill Vaulters 

Basically, gymnastics on a horse. While I would never want to do that myself (horses and I don't mix well), it sounds like a really fun show. The show is Thursday night at 6pm.
