Carnival makes debut at county fairgrounds


Crowds flocked to the Clark County Event Center at the Fairgrounds for amusement rides in place of the Clark County Fair.

The Butler Amusement Carnival, a 10-day event running from Aug. 6-15, ended the Family Fun Series.

The series started July 30, which included monster truck shows and a rodeo.

At the carnival, attendees had a chance to play games and pick from about 32 amusement rides.

Event organizers announced the Clark County Fair will make a return Aug. 5-14, 2022, after a two-year hiatus.

The Clark County Fair Board Executive Committee announced its decision in May to postpone the fair.

Factors like increasing COVID-19 infection rates and safety concerns for volunteers, led to the decision, according to a Clark County Fair Facebook post.

On Saturday, smoke lingered in the air from wildfires in nearby Oregon and California.

The Oregon Department of Environmental Quality warned Clark, Cowlitz and Skamania county residents of air quality conditions last weekend because of wildfires, according to a news release.
