Fair entertainment promises variety


September 5, 2019

Fair entertainment this year will include a mix of veteran Palouse Empire Fair acts along with some new faces.

Perennial hypnotist Jerry Harris will again perform at the fair for 2019.

He aims for a family-friendly, educational nature to his shows, teaching on the power of our subconscious minds.

He has performed as a hypnotist for more than 30 years, including audience participation at each outing.

For music, the Auf Gehts German band will appear again this year at the fair. The off-shoot act of the Community Band of the Palouse plays German and Scandinavian polkas and marches.

Further music includes Wylie and the Wild West, The Hankers, Kyle Richard and the Palouse Project, a non-profit artist development program for youth musicians around the Palouse.

His Song, a gospel music group, will perform during church service on Sunday.

In other entertainment, the Reptile Man is an act from Oregon. Richard Ritchey has performed in Oregon and Washington for the past 28 years, giving more than 400 shows per year, featuring reptiles from around the world. Taking volunteers from the crowd, many of the animals may be held.

Rounding out the fair entertainment list is Rising Stars Dance Studio, a youth performance group based in Pullman.
