The Yavapai Fair kicks off at noon today with the promise of being everything that fairs are supposed to be, from chickens, rabbits, handcrafts, artwork, jams, jellies and pickles competition to live entertainment, hamburgers, hotdogs and the ever popular carnival.

Now in its third year at Tim's Toyota Center in Prescott Valley, gates are open from noon to 9 p.m. today, from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. Friday and Saturday and 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sunday. The carnival hours are 4 to 10 p.m. today, noon to 10 p.m. Friday, 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. Saturday and noon to 7 p.m. Sunday. Ticket prices are: free for children under 6, $3 for children ages 6 to 19, $5 for adults ages 20 to 59, $3 for adults 60 and older on Thursday and Friday. All children get in free on both Thursday and Friday, and all military personnel with ID will also get in for free all days of the fair. In addition, the fair is offering family packages if people pick them up at the Tim's Toyota box office before the fair opens today. For $14, a family of six (two adults and four children) can get a day's admission. For $27, families with two adults and four children can get a four-day pass.

According to Tim's Toyota general manager Gary Spiker, "everything is looking good" for a successful fair this year. The carnival has a couple more rides, a model train club has set up a miniature train to travel among the exhibits, and, since this is the 100th anniversary of the Yavapai County Fair, fair-goers will be able to peruse books about the fair's history, Spiker said.

A full schedule of entertainment on the outdoor stage has been lined up for the four-day fair.

Beginning at 6:30 p.m. tonight, the Doc Garvey Band will entertain, followed by Becca Sharyne at 7:30 p.m. and Hypno Joe at 9 p.m.

Friday's play list includes the Franklin Phonetic School Band at 11:45 a.m., the Franklin Phonetic Schol Choir at 12:15 p.m. and the Bradshaw Mountain Middle School Choir at 1 p.m. Friday evening the Bitter Sweet Band will play from 6 to 7:30 p.m., the Funk Frequency Band at 8 p.m., and Hypno Joe at 10 p.m.

Entertainment begins at 11 a.m. Saturday with Summer's Dance Works, followed by Volante Academy at noon, Switch Performing Arts at 1 p.m., Sweet Adelines at 2 p.m. and Dance with Mrs. Sue at 3 p.m.

A highlight of Saturday's performance will be an appearance by X-Factor star Drew Ryniewicz of Chino Valley who will take the stage at 4:45 p.m. to perform a bland of her X-Factor hits, mixed with original material she has been composing and recording with other songwriters and producers in the industry.

At 7:30 p.m. the Texaco Country Showdown will bring together musicians from around Arizona to compete in finals. The winner will then compete in regional and national finals.

Hypno Joe will round out the evening's performances at 10 p.m.
