Fair season continues on this week.

This week Logan County plays host to local 4-H-ers to bring their animals and exhibits to be displayed and judged. Along with the 4-H displays, each year the installment features plenty of rides, food, races, and concerts for fair goers to enjoy. Each Friday the fair features a National Country Music Act. Geoff Ladd, Executive Director of the Abe Lincoln Tourism Bureau in Logan County says the concert is a big attraction.

This year's installment will be the 75th year of the Logan County Fair. Ladd believes the longevity of the fair is due in large part to the many attractions of the fair. He attributes much of the fairs success to the same organizers of the fair year after year.

Many fair organizers are seeing a decrease in funding for their fair this year, which is causing them to decrease the number of activities and events, Logan County will see many of the same attractions that draw so many to the festivities each year. Ladd believes for such a small community, the Logan County Fair is one of the larger fairs around.

The fair kicks off tomorrow(TUE) and will run through Sunday.
