The 2016 Entertainment is:

Every day at the Fair see:
Team Uprooted

Team Uprooted: Marty Long has been coming to the Cecil County Fair for several years, his extreme chainsaw carving show, “Team Uprooted”, never fails to draw a crowd. Marty began his carving career in 1992 with “Fear No Ice” an ice carving company and he competed on the N.I.C.A. competition circuit. In 2000 he tried his hand at woodcarving and then joined “Masters of the Chainsaw”. During a forty five-minute show, from behind protective netting, onlookers will observe an original and captivating high-energy performance. With chain saw roaring and chips flying, Marty’s precision and skill quickly transforms a three-foot tall log into a true work of art. Nearly every show will result with a chainsaw carving being produced from start to finish, with as many as four chainsaw carvings per day. Two days during the fair we auction off the carvings at a live auction, and also raffle off several pieces.

Ultimate Flying Canines

Ultimate Flying Canines: Todd Duncan and his pack of “Ultimate Flying Canines” could not be happier to be performing again this year at the Cecil County Fair. “This is one of my favorite performances of the year. The crowd is so enthusiastic and every year I get to see folks returning to the fair”, says Duncan. Todd is a five time World Dog Frisbee Champion. He has been performing professionally with his team of dogs since 2005. He has performed at State and County Fairs, NFL, NBA, MLB and College sporting events nationwide as well as competed internationally. Todd is also an active member of the DAWG Foundation.

The DAWG Foundation (Dogs Assisting Wounded GI’s) was formed with the mission of providing companion canines for US military veterans, (and select First Responders), battling PTSD.  For more information, please visit us at http://www.dawgfoundation.com.

Grand Illusions by the Bloom’s

Grand Illusions by the Bloom’s: For over twenty-five years Grand Stage Illusionist and Master Magician John Steven Bloom has been wowing audiences and garnering critical acclaim for his special blend of magic, humor and family entertainment. Mr. Bloom and his wife Chance have appeared with rock legends Alice Cooper, Journey, REO Speedwagon, comedian ‘Weird Al’ Yankovic, and country stars and actors such as Pam Tillis and Billy Bob Thornton, to name a few. John & Chance have been seen on international stages, headlined at the Texas Station Casino in Las Vegas and have been seen on numerous televised programs. John, Chance and their four daughters were a feature act at several county fairs across the Midwest in 2015. This is the Grand Illusions by the Bloom’s.

Professor Bubblemaker

Professor Bubblemaker: Eleven years ago Professor Bubblemaker began performing soap bubble art at street and arts festivals. Over the years, the show has grown from a small strolling act in Huntsville, AL to a cutting edge bubble and light show choreographed to music. In 2013 Professor Bubblemaker was featured in AMC networks “The Road Show”. In 2015 Professor Bubblemaker became the first person in the world to put a full grown cow inside a bubble and later that same year, he put a Percheron draft horse in a bubble.

During the day, the Professor will stroll around the fairgrounds filling the sky with bubbles, and delighting children of all ages performing tricks with bubbles that you never thought possible. In the evening, the lights and music come on for the Bubble Ballet and Rock & Roll Bubble show at the professor’s medicine show wagon. Both shows feature bubbles of all shapes and sizes from tiny bubbles to some of the biggest bubbles in the world. You will see bubbles made with everything from traditional bubble wands, giant rope wands of the professors invention, and nothing more than the professor’s hands. Each show ends with a finale that fills the sky with bubbles and even puts audience members inside of bubbles! These shows transport young and old alike to a wondrous world where the simple joy of bubbles will bring smiles and fun to all.
