FAYETTEVILLE (KFSM) – The Washington County Fair started on Tuesday (Sept. 1.)

Event coordinators said they were happy to have the event back, but were also hoping to attract a younger crowd.

“A lot of people do think of the fair as a carnival,” said Cheryl West, a worker at the fair since 1981. “But, when you are involved in it, you realize the crafts, the canned goods, the flowers, the horticulture products. To me, that is what the fair is all about.”

The fair will go through Saturday (Sept. 5.)
