TOWN OF HAMBURG, N.Y. (WKBW) -- Beautiful weather and just a beautiful day to go out and enjoy the Erie County Fair. There's so much to see and do each day...and tonight there was a free concert. A warm evening at the Erie county fair and the crowd is out to enjoy it. It was biker day Thursday, and hundreds of motorcycles got preferred parking right on the grounds. The wide variety of cycles, was a fair attraction of its own.

For many, the fair is still about the animals. It was a big night on the cow scene, as four age groups competed for showmanship awards. Over at the Channel Seven gazebo, one dollar gets you a spin of the wheel and a prize. All the proceeds go to the Variety Club. Channel Seven News anchors Keith and Joanna were there to greet fans and sign autographs.

Channel Seven's Kyla Igoe on the main stage to help introduce Ace Frehley. Best known as the lead guitarist of the rock band Kiss...Frehely's free show was full of bright lights and loud sound. Thursday night's big feature is the Ultimate Night of Destruction, as buses take part in a demolition derby.
