PERRIS - Monster trucks, live music, livestock shows, carnival rides and other entertainment will highlight the 105th Southern California Fair, opening Saturday and continuing for more than a week at the Perris Fairgrounds.

Activities are generally slated to run between 9 a.m. and 9:30 p.m. during the weekend, and between 4 and 11 p.m. weekdays, according to organizers.

Along with a host of rides, this year's event will feature a comedy stunt show, a "nitro circus,'' barrel racing with horseback riders, dairy cattle judging contests, monster truck competitions in the arena and satellite-based gaming, organizers said.

There will be an 1880s "Pioneer Experience'' on the Heritage Stage, offering a glimpse into late 19th century farm life, and attendees can form their own teams for the popular "Hay Bucking Contest,'' during which competitors attempt to load flatbed trucks with as much hay as possible in the shortest space of time.

A number of bands are scheduled to perform, including the 1980s pop-rock favorite Jefferson Starship and country music artist Dylan Scott.

General admission is $5 per day for children ages 5-12, while adult tickets are $10, though some events will require additional payments. Anyone younger than 4 will be admitted free, and military personnel and seniors are eligible for discounts.

The fair will conclude Sunday, Oct. 14. More information is available at .
