The family has 17 animals at the fair.

The midway opens at 3 p.m. Wednesday and it's Customer Appreciation Day, when $15 gets you into the fair plus unlimited rides at the carnival. 7th Heaven performs at 7 p.m. at the Sound Stage.

The fair is open 3 to 11 p.m. Wednesday and Thursday, noon to midnight Friday and Saturday, and noon to 10 p.m. Sunday.
