  • Mud bog returns to LaRue Fair

    The LaRue County Fair is bringing back one of the dirtiest sports imaginable – the mud bog.
    Fair board member Jimbo Skaggs is organizing the event which features drivers attempting to maneuver their trucks across a deep mud pit. It will be about 4-feet-deep, about 20-feet-wide and about 180-feet-long.
    “We’re gonna get some trucks real muddy out there Thursday night,” said Skaggs. “The bog hasn’t been at the LaRue County Fair in 20 years. Fans want to see it.”
