Friday night entertainment will include SES and fire brigade displays, miniature horse displays, Segway bikes, a snake pit, dog jumping competition, country music artists, an animal nursery, a temporary tattoo station, dodgem cars and a home-crafts pavilion display.
Miss and Mr Teenager judging will take place at 8pm.
