PULASKI, Ill. -- Demolition derbies, tractor pulls, a four-wheel drive mud race and a western show will highlight events at the 43th annual Pulaski County Fair, which starts Aug. 12.

Two demolition derby events are on the schedule -- a local derby limited to Pulaski and Alexander County residents only on Aug. 12, and an open-entry event scheduled Aug. 15.

Two tractor pulls are also planned. The International Tractor Pull Association's sanctioned pull is the main event Aug. 17, featuring a half-dozen classes filled with stock and modified machines. A garden-tractor pull is scheduled the same evening at 6 p.m.

A regular tractor pull will be held Wednesday night.

A Western horse show will be held Aug. 16, and a mud race Aug. 17.

The event at Pulaski, along U.S. Highway 51 halfway between Cairo and Anna, kicks off Aug. 11 with a gospel sing and community worship services.

Admission to the fairgrounds is $2 for each car load, or 50 cents a person for walk-ins. Admission for grandstand events are $5 for adults and $2 for children, except the horse show, which is free.
