Our 2022 Entertainment was:
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.

Sixteen 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.
