Woodcarving by Tom Nero
Event Date: 
Mon, August 7, 2017, 12:00pm to Sun, August 13, 2017, 8:00pm
Event Category: 

Tom Nero, a successful businessman and lifelong (now age 88) resident of Brecksville, was a promising artist in high school (class of 1948).  He won an art scholarship to Cleveland Institute of Art, but instead earned Business degrees (Ph. D) at Kent State University.  Entrepreneur that he is, he founded Aurora Farms Factory Outlets as the first of its kind in Ohio (6th in USA).  In the 1990s, Tom sold Aurora Farms, taught at CSU and KSU, and took up woodcarving, without benefit of any formal art instruction.

Tom did take some woodcarving workshops for the technical aspects and has since carved well over 150 pieces, which he never sells, retaining all for occasional gifts to family members.  His work consists of 3-D carvings and framed bas-relief hangings.  Subjects focus on Native Americans, Mountain Men, caricatures, Santa Clause bas-reliefs and carousel animals.  These are carved from basswood mostly, but also from maple and pine, using a plethora of woodcarving tools.

Now essentially retired from carving, Nero is still active in Buckeye Woodcarvers, NorthCoast Wood-turners and the Christian Appalachian Project, which he founded at St. Basil The Great church 26 years ago, receiving donated used household items each September and shipping 3-5 semi-trailer loads to Kentucky quickly thereafter.

Tom was inducted into the Brecksville-Broadview Heights High School Gallery of Achievement in 2012 and was named by the City of Brecksville as Senior Volunteer Man of the Year in 2013.

If your kids weren't raised on a farm, it's likely they've never had the experience of milking a cow.  Well, the Cuyahoga County Fair has the answer.  Bring your kids into the Sheep Barn, where just to the right of the entrance, you'll see our Milking Cow.  She's a very placid cow, largely because she's made out of plastic, but she does produce milk, which is kind of miraculous when you think about it.  Your kids will have an udderly fantastic time, so bring a bowl of dry cereal, and have at it.

Moo U guides want to change the way the general public views the production livestock industry. We want people to realize that the animals are more than just a food source. Alternate protein sources are easy to find, but replacements for the byproducts that we use daily are not so readily available. Everyone uses animal byproducts on a daily basis, if you live in a home, use electronics, drive or ride in a car. It is extremely important to educate our youth about where their food is coming from and how it is raised and grown. Our tours will be a benefit to your fair, community and school educational programs.

Moo U will be at the Fair Tuesday through Sunday from 1 PM to 8 PM offering livestock barn tours on the hour.  They will have a pop up tent in front of the Cow Palace where the tours will start and end.

Event Date: 
Fri, August 11, 2017, 1:30pm to 2:00pm
Event Category: 

Wade Henry hails from a long line of freedom-fighting Irish settlers who homesteaded in Manitoba in the 1700's and 1800's. It was in this Canadian West that Wade started training for his life as a performing artist.

Wade's inclination towards danger became apparent when, as a toddler, he was found riding bareback on his grandmother's german shephard.

Not long after the family's move to Pocatello, Idaho, Wade's father—perhaps to spare area canines—gave him a pony for Chistmas. His trusty steed at the ready, Wade adopted a "Cowboy Spirit," which he describes as: "...a certain attitude that most ideally fits the American man. It includes integrity, honesty and courage...along with a high esteem for family, a need for personal liberty, a spiritual element, and of course, a sense of humor. Further, the cowboy is a bit of a show-off. He values his own unique skills and abilities, and enjoys testing and improving them—whether in front of a rodeo crowd, or many miles from town as the sun sets."

Something of a nomad, Wade returned to Canada and spent long, frigid winters as a hockey goalie in the Great Lakes region of SW Ontario. His coach had him throw rubber balls around to improve his reflexes. Soon a professional juggler was born.

Honors Business Degree in hand, and now in his early twenties, Wade took an unconventional turn and decided to travel the world on a shoestring. For a time, he settled into working a farm in New Zealand. Calling home, he informed his parents that after years of academic toil and preparation for the corporate world, he had decided to return to the land - like a true Henry.

After the harvest, Wade continued his travels for another year—through Australia, Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand and China and back to Canada. Necessity being the mother of invention, he funded these travels as a world-class street performer, delivering shows on streets, town squares and harborfront areas of various Australian and Canadian cities.

Wade's travels as a performer are partially documented in his popular adventure novel "The Greatest Finale".

Wade spent the next several years developing and polishing his skills as a performing artist. He is an accomplished juggler, unicyclist, ropewalker, fire eater, equilibriast, magician, speaker and comic. His most important and useful skill, however, may be his ability to handle people and audiences.

Given Wade's affinity for the land, he is naturally at home at county fairs, which serve to celebrate farming and agriculture. For Wade, these fairs are peopled by folks who understand the value of humor and a little high-spirited showing-off. Wade has performed over 6,000 shows and continues his prolific career at this year's Cuyahoga County Fair.

The Fearless Flores Thrill Show not only features a stunt man, but a stunt woman... and their stunt kids, all hailing from Myakka City, Fla. They earned a spot in the quarterfinals of Season 6 of “America's Got Talent.” In their first appearance, the two daredevil Flores kids, ages 8 and 13, rode motorcycles in the Globe of Death. Their dad, Ricardo, just happened to be standing in the globe while the kids looped around him at top speed. Ricardo didn't even seem to be fazed by it, probably because the Flores kids have been daredevils since the ages of 4 and 6 and are now the youngest brother and sister team to conquer the Globe of Death. The Flores family upped the ante in their next appearance by adding mom Arcelia to an already dangerous mix.

The Cuyahoga County Fair is excited to announce that for the first time ever, all 10 generations of the Fearless Flores Family will perform together at one site!

They will be performing a chill inducing sway pole aerial act 60 ft. above terra firma.

The Fearless Flores Family consists of Ricardo (Father), Arcelia (Mother), Cyndel (13-year-old daughter) and Volorian (eight-year-old son). These ninth and tenth generation performers from South Florida are proud to present "Motorcycle Madness" inside the legendary "Globe of Death" (motorcycles inside a metal ball). Ricardo and Arcelia have presented this act for over 10 years and Cyndel began at the young age of six, while Volorian started his daredevil life at the unbelievable age of four. Cyndel and Volorian are currently the youngest brother and sister team to race inside the "Globe of Death." The Fearless Flores Family likes to perform all over the country at fairs, festivals and motor sports events.

Fearless Flores Family Globe of Death Motorcycle Thrill Show
Event Date: 
Tue, August 8, 2017, 9:00pm to 9:30pm
Stage: 
Event Category: 

The Fearless Flores Thrill Show not only features a stunt man, but a stunt woman... and their stunt kids, all hailing from Myakka City, Fla. They earned a spot in the quarterfinals of Season 6 of “America's Got Talent.” In their first appearance, the two daredevil Flores kids, ages 8 and 13, rode motorcycles in the Globe of Death. Their dad, Ricardo, just happened to be standing in the globe while the kids looped around him at top speed. Ricardo didn't even seem to be fazed by it, probably because the Flores kids have been daredevils since the ages of 4 and 6 and are now the youngest brother and sister team to conquer the Globe of Death. The Flores family upped the ante in their next appearance by adding mom Arcelia to an already dangerous mix.

Event Category: 

Professor Bubblemaker's Marvelous Medicine Show combines the elements of magic, mentalism, comedy, history, a flea circus and of course lots of bubbles. Available in a purely entertainment show and an educational show which includes more historical information.

Professor Bubblemaker's Beautiful Bubble Ballet  features bubbles of all sizes and bubble sculptures such as caterpillars, carousels, square bubbles, snowmen and even a bubble snowglobe as well as giant bubbles and tiny bubbles and bubble snakes that flow gracefully under colored lights choreographed to music.

Professor Phineas's Hypnotic Adventures are hypnosis shows unlike any that you have seen before Whether a standard comedy hypnosis show, strolling "street hypnosis" or a hypnotic adventure in which the hypnotized volunteers become the stars of a funny adventure, the audience and volunteers are entertained and delighted with the power of their own minds.

Professor Bubblemaker's Festival Bubbles is a freeform demostration of bubble art at it's interactive best! You still get bubbles of all sizes and shapes, as well as the bubble sculptures, but as the weather changes it allows different tricks to be done and the audience is encouraged to chase, pop or play with the bubbles.

Colonel Bubblemaker's Fantastic Flea Circus is  a complete circus complete with a grand parade, tightrope walkers, trapeze artists, a death defying high dive as well as a "human cannonball" and other acts, all contained within a suitcase. The performers in this amazing circus are tiny trained fleas. We even have the worlds strongest flea Hugo and an equestrian team of fleas riding on gnats.
