Guitar melodies joined the sounds of carnival rides and monster trucks Thursday at the Hardin County Fair.
Members of the Heartland Songwriters’ Association performed in their annual showcase at the fair. Gary Fights, president of the association, said the fair is a good way to introduce musicians to a large number of listeners.
Because the crowd moves around at the fair, as opposed to a more traditional concert setting, more people will see parts of the show, Fights said.
“You get a chance to play for a wider audience,” he said.
