Another year of fun at the fairgrounds

The Lorain County Fair officially kicked off Aug. 21, but plenty showed up for “free day” events the day prior. Many vendors were already set up and ready to serve as visitors got a lay of the land for the week of fun ahead. On Monday, the Junior Fair crowned its king and queen before a horsemanship king and queen was decided in the evening.
