5 York Fair acts to see: Salt-N-Pepa, Jeff Dunham

The York Fair is back this September with lots of fried food, farm animals and a whole new lineup of live entertainment.

Anyone else counting down the days?

This year's lineup includes some country, a little bit of comedy and even a night devoted entirely to '90s hip hop.

Here are the five main stage shows to see at the fair.

Chase Rice

Country singer Chase Rice will kick things off on Saturday, Sept. 10.

Rice, known for co-writing the Florida Georgia Line single “Cruise,” released his latest album “Ignite The Night” in 2014. The album includes the single “Ready Set Roll.”

“Survivor” fans might also remember him as the runner-up on “Survivor: Nicaragua” in 2010.

Country band Parmalee will open the show at 7:30 p.m.

Tickets range from $20-$35.

I Love the 90’s Tour

On Wednesday, Sept. 14, the York Fair will take a break from country music for a show ‘90s kids won’t want to miss.

The top superstars of the decade – including Salt-N-Pepa, Vanilla Ice, Coolio, Tone Loc, Young MC and Color Me Badd – will bust a move on the grandstand stage starting at 7 p.m.

Expect to hear all your favorites from “Ice Ice Baby” to “Gangsta's Paradise.”

Tickets range from $34-$49.
