Fair Weekend at Fair
The county fair season is in high gear this weekend and next with no less than 8 venues hosting kids in 4H, motor sports and summer concerts. Considering these are the dog days of summer, the weather will certainly cooperate this weekend.
Daytime highs with sunshine will be hot but manageable in the 85 (Saturday) to 90 (Sunday) range.Hay farmers should take advantage of the hot but dry daytime sunshine to get that second cut done. Drying conditions will be nearly perfect into the new week.
But a word of caution for next week’s fairs (Mason, Carter,Scioto and Athens), a blistering heat wave will gobble up much of the
Fair midways will be busy this Saturday evening in Elizabeth (Wirt), Sutton (Braxton), Matewan (Magnolia),
Evening temperatures will fall into the cozy 70s as the sun sets in a blaze of glory.
Your Saturday night fair marquee is as follows.
