Huron County Fair Board Director Pat Coy said this year's fair has been "superb" so far.

"Everybody seems happy," she said.

Huron County Fair Board Director Barney Bacon said Monday's attendance was 6,528, while Tuesday's attendance was 5,896. Combined, those numbers are down about 600 from last year, Bacon said.

Still, Bacon said he's pleased.

"Last year was a super year for us," he said, adding the fair doesn't get such high numbers attendance wise every year.

Attendance at the 2013 Huron County Fair was "as good as (I) can remember," Bacon said.

Bacon said Wednesday was a good day at the fair.

"I love today's weather; this is good," he said. "We're hoping for a good night tonight."

One of Wednesday night's attractions was the OSTPA Tractor Pull with semis.

Unlike Monday and Tuesday, when rain fell on the fairgrounds, Wednesday saw clear skies and pleasant temperatures.

Today's activities include the nursing home king and queen contest at 10:30 a.m., a dairy judging contest at 1 p.m. a dairy showmanship clinic at 2 p.m., bingo for everyone take place at 3 p.m. and the small livestock sale, featuring turkeys, goats, rabbits and chickens, will take place at 6 p.m.

Today is expected to be sunny, with a high of 70 and a low of 50 at night.
