Every year, tens of thousands of people gather at the fairgrounds for entertainment, competition and socialization at the Hardin County Community Fair and Horse Show.
And despite recent record high temperatures, this year is expected to be no different.
“The weather’s all our biggest hope,” said T.R. Smallwood, vice president of the county fair. “I think the fair kind of takes care of itself. They show up anyway.”
President Larry Jaggers expects between 18,000 and 20,000 visitors, matching its regular attendance numbers.
