WELLINGTON, Ohio - The Lorain County Fair first started in 1846. Over the years, many things have changed but the expectations are always the same.
The goal of the fair is for families to come out and enjoy themselves along with learning about the numerous animals that are on display.
The weather always has an impact on the crowds. When it rains, people seem to stay away. The weather is perfect and the crowds seem to be up. In fact, the weather should be optimal all week, which will be beneficial for the visitors, vendors and entertainment acts.
With a new and improved stage, country music star Randy Houser performed. The stands were packed and the crowd was definitely into the show.
The 4-H club is well known at the fair as they show their prized animals, fruits and vegetables, even artwork.
Max Mohr, 15, has been in 4-H for the past six years. He is entering his pigs and turkeys this year.
"I think its important because it gets the kids out here and gets people to do stuff. People that don't do sports over the summer, this is what they look forward to," said Mohr.
The Lorain County fair is located in Wellington and runs through Sunday Aug. 25.
