Grab your cowboy hat and hang on tight cause you’re about to be in for a wild ride. The 2014 Larimer County Fair presented by Colorado Lottery is coming to town and bringing some incredible entertainment along with it. This year’s fair will feature brand new attractions as well as crowd favorites from the past that are sure to thrill all ages. The Dog and Pony Variety Show, Kid’s Fishing Tank presented by Jax Outdoor Gear, Pony Express Rides & Petting Zoo, and the brand new Comedy Wild West Show: Shenaniguns will have you shouting “yeehaw!”

In Shenaniguns Comedy Wild West Show, the Wild West Goes Whack-o when Sheriff Hoppalong Casually and Deputy Leon Jones strap on Big Iron and face off against dimwit desperado Bad Bob and his bumbling baby brother Bubba Bob. This quartet of cut-up cowboys fires off a laugh-a-minute load of funny one-liners, silly sight gags, and crack-up cornball comedy. The sheriff, deputy, and Bob Brothers will be duking it out several times a day on August 1-3, so be sure to check your fair schedule and get ready for some fast-paced, family-friendly, Wild West Entertainment!
Returning for a second year, The Dog & Pony Variety Show is a fun family variety show filled with equine and canine acts with western flair!
