The Mesa County Fairgrounds is just weeks away from celebrating it's 125th fair, and in it's honor the county has declared July to be "Fair Month."
Officials say this will be the biggest fair Mesa County has ever seen.
Each year more than 50,000 people attend the fair and officials say they would not expect anything less this year either.
The executive fair board says in addition to the normal entertainment, they will be new events like a 35-ton sand sculpture, kayak lessons, two additional music stages and a working ranch rodeo.
But officials say they believe the sand sculpture is going to be the main attraction this year.
"It's going to be like 12 feet high and 20 by 20 and it's going to take them all week to build this sand sculpture so people are going to have to come back over and over to see it," manager of the fairgrounds Jo Carole Haxel said.
Also for the first time this year, people can buy their fair tickets online.
Admission is $5 for adults, $3 for seniors and just $1 for children. Families also have the option of week-long passes.
