Gospel Night at the fair takes place on Tuesday, Aug. 7 and starts at 5:30 p.m. with the Harry Rhodes Gospel Sing and culminates in a performance by the Mark Trammell Quartet at 9 p.m., all on the main stage. Tuesday is also Senior Citizens Day at the fair when all seniors 60 and older receive free admission into the fair.

Three groups will perform during the Harry Rhodes Gospel Sing and are Covered by Love, West Virginia Couriers and Builders Quartet.

According to Evenlyn Roush, the Harry Rhodes Gospel Sing has been a part of the Mason County Fair for many years and was originally organized by Harry Rhodes. The sing features local talent from Mason County as well as the surrounding areas. Roush said the sing has always had major support from the senior citizens who attend the fair.
