Bull riding is back at the Washington County Ag Expo & Fair. Young spectators will have more than a chance to watch riders get thrown from bulls - or stay on for eight seconds, which is the actual goal. This year youths have a chance to participate in their own wild ride by trying to ride a sheep for six seconds. And everyone can watch some professionals as they sit at a poker table in the arena while a bull is let loose, trying to be the brave soul who remains in his seat the longest.

By DON AINES / Staff Writer, Chambersburg photo: RIC DUGAN / staff photographer CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. - Between heats in Tuesday's demolition derby at the Franklin County Fair drivers tended to battered vehicles with sledgehammers, crowbars and bags of ice. "Don't tell anybody about this," one man said as he piled ice cubes on the engine block. The last of the engine's coolant had just gurgled and hissed away and the radiator was in no shape to hold any more.

Adrenaline and excitement went hand-in-hand as the demolition derby drew hundreds to the Franklin County Fair Wednesday night.

A "tuff truck" competition and a Princess contest are among the new events at Tri-State-area fairs kicking off this month. The Fulton County (Pa.) Fair starts Sunday, the Jefferson County (W.Va.) Fair kicks off Saturday, Aug. 16, and the Franklin County (Pa.) Fair starts Sunday, Aug. 17. The Jefferson County Fair has added a tuff truck and car competition and a third night of truck and tractor pulling, so those pulling events won't go as far into the night as they have recently, said Todd Wilt, fair manager.
