The KLYQ Free Stage brings all sorts of entertainment to the Ravalli County Fair afternoon crowds during the four-day run. And this year, the large tent has moved.

For the last three years, the tent has been at Mandy Park on the north end of the fairgrounds, near some of the children's activities. But this year, it moves up the midway into the commercial booth area, bringing it closer to other activities on the fairgrounds.

Featured again this year will popular national hypnotist Michael Mezmer, who will have shows every day of the fair. His first "audience interactive" show will be Wednesday at 4 p.m.

The local dance group, the Country Step Cloggers (see photo), will be on stage Thursday through Saturday at 1 p.m. Also doing multiple shows will be local magician Brandon LaStella.

Wednesday at 6 p.m. will be the annual pie, cake and cookie auction.

Thursday at 4 p.m. will be the Ravalli County Fair Poetry Contest.

The Bitterroot Community Band will have one performance - at 2 p.m. Saturday.
