Monday, the Benton Franklin Fair kicks off with the Demo Derby in the Legacy Ford Arena.

Drivers bring out all sorts of metal creations for the time trials that kick off at 6:30 p.m.  Racing starts at 7:30, and then it's mechanical mayhem as the cars crash, clang and bend each other until only one is left moving.

Tickets are available on the fair website and at the fairgrounds box office. But hurry, this event ALWAYS sells out!
