The 2018 edition of Huron County Fair got off to a splendid start Monday as sunny skies and tolerable temperatures greeted visitors.

"It didn't rain," said James Miller, a Huron County Senior Fair board director.

Miller said 4-H showings and classes have been going well.

"We're always anxious to see the people come see the fair," Miller said.

The up-and-coming country music duo LoCash rocked the grandstand area in the evening.

Miller said the performance went well, although previous concerts produced a better turn out.

Today is Kids Day and Mercy Willard Hospital Day at the Huron County Fair.

That means admission is free for everyone until 3 p.m. Rides cost extra, however.

Today’s forecast calls for mostly sunny skies and a high of 85. Tonight’s low will be 67. While no threat of rain exists for today or tonight, there is a 30-percent chance of showers Wednesday afternoon.

Kids Day activities will take place throughout the fairgrounds, including the Heritage and Farm Bureau areas, at the combine simulator and by the Expo building. Some concession trailers will offer Kid’s Day specials.

The Huron County Sheriff’s Office’s finger-printing will be done in the commercial building.

A children’s tractor pull will take place at noon at the Pickworth building. Beginning at 1 p.m., Foundation Church will conduct free games and crafts inside the Pickworth building. 

Professor Bubble Maker will be strolling the grounds throughout the day. In the evening, he will perform his light-bubble show.

Lee Germain & Judy will entertain on stage with their magic act at Heritage area entrance, with several shows today. Chainsaw demonstrations also will be held throughout the day at the Heritage entrance.

Matt Goodrich will be entertaining in the Veterans Pavilion.

Other activities today include the Cheer Bonanza at 6:30 p.m. in the Grandstand area, CMFCS pie auction and ReMax hot air balloon rides.

Today’s Junior Fair activities include goat skillathons, saddle horse performance and turkey judging in the morning, swine showmanship show in the afternoon and the queen contest at 6:30 p.m. in the Judging Pavilion. The evening’s finale is a square dance at 8:30 p.m., also in the Judging Pavilion.

Wednesday is Veterans Day, with veterans being admitted for 1 cent each.
