The Clay County 4-H Council will present "Metal Mania Demolition Derby" at the conclusion of the fair this year.

The event will take place Saturday at the fairgrounds.

I really think 4H-ers should get a break on attending as well as 15 years and younger, keep the entry fee to make up the difference.
