MORRISONVILLE — The Clinton County Fair is no stranger to monster trucks, but the colossal floor-pounding vehicles set to take over the fairgrounds this summer promise to bring two nights of monster truck fun that organizers say unlike anything the North Country has seen before.
“BIG FOOT” OBSERVATION
Six larger-than-life monster trucks – including “BIGFOOT,” also known as the “Original Monster Truck” – will kick the dirt and get the crowd going during Monster Truck Madness, scheduled for Friday, the 29th and Saturday, July 30 as part of the 2022 Clinton County Fair lineup.
The show will begin at 7 p.m. on both nights, providing two full hours of entertainment each night.
