Get ready! Opening morning of the Ionia Free Fair is Thursday, July 13!

An egg cracking contest will be held to kick the fair off with McDonald's employees across the state. The contest challenges the 20 best in the state to see how many eggs they can crack and place in Egg McMuffin rings in 15 seconds.

It is part of a huge celebration of the Michigan's egg industry.
