Event Category: 

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 Commercial Building, where you'll find our Milking Cow.  She's a very placid cow, largely because she's made 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.

Event Date: 
Tue, August 6, 2019 (All day)
Stage: 
Event Category: 

Carl Jara is a lifetime resident of the greater Cleveland area. He attended high school knowing full well that he wanted to become an artist--taking and retaking every art class at school. In an act of desperation, his art teacher sent him to work with the stage crew.  There he met Tom Morrison, then a firefighter and President For life of the International Association of Sand Castle Builders. Tom took Carl under his wing, teaching him the basics of both sandsculpting and business. Carl moved on to study Fine Arts at the Myers School of Art in Akron, Ohio, studying Illustration and Graphic Design, all the while working with Tom and being introduced to a community of professional sand sculptors he never knew existed.

When it came time for his Bachelor of Fine Arts exhibition, he realized that illustration and graphic design were not his true calling.  What he did have was a desire to sculpt. His fifteen foot sand sculpture in the school gallery graced the front pages of local newspapers and was broadcast across the region on the evening news. It was the defining moment that launched his career.

He now holds nine World Championship medals, at least three dozen medals from other contests, and has been featured twice on Sand Blasters on the Travel Channel. He's worked and competed in eleven countries, more than two dozen states, and continues to carve out his living in sand.

In addition to sculpting, he accepted the position of Exhibits Artisan/Technician at the Cleveland Museum of Natural History, where he gets to use his creative akills in a completely different manner.  He's helped install Sue, the largest T-Rex ever found, as well as articulated Lucy, one of the oldest hominid fossils yet discovered. So if you're ever at the Museum, give him a shout... you might just get a behind-the-scenes tour!

Imagine the person that was sitting next to you just a few minutes ago is now up on stage and can’t remember their own name! Or better yet one of your friends is up on the stage claiming that their belly button was stolen. Then with a snap of David’s fingers they enter back into a hypnotic trance. Sounds entertaining huh? This is just the beginning of what to expect in the show. 

No one is forced to volunteer. David will invite anyone who wants to get hypnotized to join him and fill the 15-20 chairs that are on stage. In just a few moments your friends and the rest of the volunteers fall into a hypnotic trance. Then the fun begins! 

It is comedy like no other. Mainly because YOU and YOUR FRIENDS are the stars of the show!
