The 2012 Benton Franklin Fair is Aug. 21-25. We'll be rockin' the stock with great entertainment this year. Here is the schedule:

Aug. 21 REO Speedwagon

Aug. 22 Hinder

Aug. 23 Big & Rich With Cowboy Troy And Bradley Gaskin

Aug. 24 Foghat

Aug. 25 Jerrod Neimann

The ticket pre-sales event is this Saturday starting at 8 a.m. at the Fairgrounds Box Office. Obviously this year's entertainment is going to be big! KORD already has F.O.B.'s -- that would be "Friends Of Bear's -- in line!

They started camping out on Monday night and are determined to stay there and get the best seats for the fair! My cowboy hat is off to these die-hard fair fans. Come out and join the fun and camp out. Or you can go out and see if there is anything these concert campers need.

If you are not the "outdoorsy" type, this year you will be able to buy your tickets to all events starting at 12:30 p.m. online.
