Maci Caddell enjoyed riding the cars at the fair.

The 85th annual Caneyville Fair has come to a close for the year.

The fair took place over three days, beginning with the annual cornhole competition and the community worship service on Thursday hosted by Redemption Lake Worship Center.

Then on Friday, the festivities began with the Caneyville Fair parade in which local businesses, organizations, beauty queens, farmers and politicians joined together to celebrate the city of Caneyville by dressing up, making floats and throwing out candy to people who came to watch the parade.

People were able to ride the carnival rides or play bingo after the parade was finished. Then at noon the Magic Show started in the gym of the Purple Flash Center. Next people had the opportunity to participate in old-fashioned games.

The outdoor entertainment and singing took place from 2-5 p.m. then the candidates "Kiss the Pig" auction began at 5 p.m. followed by the pageants for young miss, pre-teen, teen, miss and Ms.

On Saturday after the fire department's annual pancake breakfast, the day kicked-off with everyone's favorite event, the terrapin race. It was followed by the baby pageants and the three-point shoot-out. The carnival opened at 10 a.m. allowing all of the children who weren't in the pageants to enjoy themselves after the terrapin races reached their conclusion.

At noon, the car show began at Caneyville Elementary School. Then the outdoor entertainment went on from 4-6 p.m. with the Morgantown Line Dancers and Battle Cry performing.

People were able to participate in the lip sync battle in the gym of the Purple Flash Center from 2-4 p.m., then the audience could listen to people really sing during the karaoke contest that followed.
