The Lucas County Fair is 155 years old. It opens Tuesday in Maumee at the Lucas County Recreation Center. A total of 40,000 visitors are expected to come and enjoy the rides, exhibits, food and animals.
Among the first arrivals are the 4-H kids and the animals they've been raising.
Anna McDermott hopes to take home a first place ribbon with her turkey, Tom.
"They're a lot of fun actually. They're pretty low maintenance so that's nice," she said.
Keaton Grabarczyk says her rabbits are similar in personality.
"Because they're easy to take care of and they're really fluffy too," she said.
Agriculture is a way of life for the kids.
4-H exposes them to many lessons.
"It gives them the opportunity to see where food comes from, to really work hard. They're out there every day taking care of the animals and learning how God provides for us in that way," said 4-H mom Laurie Mitchell.
But there's not as many farms in Lucas County compared to other outlying rural areas in northwest Ohio. That's why the fair board offers other alternatives for visitors to enjoy besides farm life.
"There are lots of other activities. Knitting, cooking, homemade beer and wine contests, photography, planting, gardening, things like that," said Keith Carr of the fair board.
The fair runs through next Sunday.
Admission is $6.00. However, on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, visitors can get in for free before 3 p.m.
