You name it and you'll find it at this year's Kewaunee County Fair, which opens Thursday in Luxemburg and runs through Sunday.

Cows, pigs, chickens and ... elephants? Check. The Carson & Barnes Circus performs under the big top at 2 and 5 p.m. Sunday ($16 adults, $10 children, with discounted advance tickets at www.bigtopshow.com; fair wristband not required).

Little Texas? Check. The country band that had a string of hits in the '90s with "God Blessed Texas," "Kick a Little" and "What Might Have Been" headlines Friday night on the Van's Lumber Midway Stage. Diamond & Steel opens at 6 p.m., followed by Little Texas at 10 p.m. Admission is free with a fair wristband.

The next best thing to Bon Jovi? Check. Tribute band Bad Medicine (6-9 p.m.) does the opening honors for Annex (9:30 p.m.-12:30 a.m.) on Saturday. Free with a fair wristband.

Loud stuff with motors? Check. The grandstand hosts the Luxemburg Motors Farm Tractor Pull at 7 p.m. Friday ($5 adults, $2 ages younger than 10, free younger than 5) and the Action Auto Demolition Derby at 7 p.m. Saturday ($8 adults, $4 ages younger than 10, free younger than 5). Fair wristbands are required for both events.

Camera crews? Check. Spectrum Entertainment, the Ironwood, Mich., carnival that provides rides and games for the fair, is the subject of film titled "Carnival: The Movie." The production company planned to begin filming Tuesday at the fairgrounds.

Throw in good food, all those 4-H kids and their exhibits, daily children's entertainment and Saturday's livestock auction at 1 p.m., and all your standard fair fare is there for the 96th annual event.

Admission is $7 daytime today-Saturday, $9 after 4 p.m. today and Saturday, $10 after 4 p.m. Friday and $6 all day Sunday. Admission includes a wristband for unlimited carnival rides. Parking is $2. More info at www.kewauneectyfair.com.
