FARMINGTON — The American Diving Dogs, fast becoming a Davis County Fair mainstay, are back by popular demand.
The Davis County Commission approved a $4,500 contract Tuesday with the California-based diving-dog act that made a splash with Davis audiences.
“They are a favorite, requested by many,” Davis County Fair coordinator Allison Barnes said.
“We have a lot of people calling (the fair offices) to make sure they will be here.
“The American Diving Dogs have been a big attraction at the fair for four years,” she said.
Fair patrons are attracted to the act that features dogs competitively diving into a pool of water, Barnes said.
Davis County Commissioner Louenda Downs said she is personally a fan of the act and on occasion has attended the shows.
The Davis County Fair will be held Aug. 14-17 at the Legacy Events Center, 151 S. 1100 West, Farmington.
Fair admission is free.
Barnes said there is no charge to attend the diving-dog show, which is scheduled to appear four times daily during the course of the four-day event.
“It gives us something to look forward to, knowing warmth is coming,” Davis County Commissioner Bret Millburn said of booking acts for the summer fair in the midst of freezing temperatures outside.
