The community stage in the middle of the fair is host to several acts throughout the day from hypnotists to local bands to mariachi and so much more. One act you'll have a chance of watching throughout the entire duration of the fair is Rafael the Magician. It'll be worth your while to see him.
If you're thinking Magic of Rafael looks familiar, he probably does. He's been on a host of tv shows including America's Got Talent.
This interactive act had both children and adults ooh-ing and aah-ing as well as laughing throughout the entire performance.
This is also very interactive inviting children on stage twice to help him with his act as well as a strong adult so if you or your dad or someone who can lift something off the ground (I won't spoil what it is) make sure you sit in good eye-line so when called you can become part of the act.
I was the one called on stage and I'm here to tell you, again, without spoiling what happens, I was on stage and could see everything... and I still couldn't tell you how they did what they did. Pretty amazing. And pretty funny.
Magic of Rafael seems to have about 4 shows daily every day of the fair. Make it to see this. I'm sure you'll love it.
And, c'mon, it's free as part of your ticket to the Central Washington State Fair.
