With set-up for the 139th-annual Fayette County Fair finishing this weekend, the whole community is invited to the opening ceremony on Sunday.
Following the Queen’s Tea on June 27, a field of seven ladies attempting to become the next Fayette County Fair Queen was narrowed to three. Those three — Victoria Schappacher, Haley Copas and Jordan Bernard — will be the 2018 Fayette County Fair Court and one will be named queen. The Fayette County Fair Queen will be crowned during the opening ceremony on Sunday at 2:30 p.m. at the McDonald’s Grandstand. Organizers are encouraging the entire community to join for the celebration.
