From 8:30 to 5 o'clock (on the 30th), exhibits can be entered at the Rock Barn. These are entered into the junior and senior divisions of household arts, horticulture and science, and a "creative" category. The fine arts room (southeast corner of the courtyard) will be accepting entries until 2 o'clock on Tuesday afternoon.

Dog show competition is scheduled at the Green Hills Animal Shelter east of Trenton on Highway 6 at 10 o'clock in the morning.

Over 80 entries are anticipated for the running of the fair parade on Tuesday night. Those entries will need to be lined up by 5 o'clock for judging. The parade, with the agriculturally-based theme of "Thank A Farmer", begins at 5:30. It will follow the usual route from 12th and Normal to 17th Street, then east to Main Street, south to the intersection of 9th and Main, with a left turn then going east on 9th Street to the vicinity of the shopping center. KTTN's John Anthony will broadcast a description of parade entries as they pass by 9th and Main (downtown). Candy will be permitted to be thrown by entries to the children and adults watching curbside. The grand marshals of the parade will be the seven candidates for North Central Missouri Fair queen. Coronation of the queen is at 7 o'clock at the fairgrounds, prior to the music show called "Organized Chaos, Chapter Two", featuring local singers and musicians.

Performers on stage for the grandstand show will include Travis Mullenix, Bob Gass, Charlie Bacon, Will Zang, Julie McNabb, Gordy Hale, Melissa and Michelle Gay, Travis Elbert, Kennedy Norton, Maycee Henson, Dave Lamme, Tim and Ellis Gilham, and the group "One Step Forward" (consisting of Brandon Spencer, Eric Lynch, Sonya Tabbert, and Jack Bain). Admission will be $5.00. Children ages five and under will be admitted free.

The Trenton FFA and Alumni have a barbecue supper at 6 o'clock. Cost is $6.00 per plate. Regular hours of the FFA Cook Shack are from 10 AM to 10 PM through Friday, August 2nd. On Saturday morning, the cook shack will open at 8 o'clock for breakfast. The Trenton Lions Club will operate a concession stand each night of the grandstand attractions. Beer sales will be RESTRICTED to the grandstand are for each of the five nights of entertainment.
