2013 Jefferson County Fair kicks off Tuesday

The Jefferson County Fair officially kicks off Tuesday and fair board members have been out at the fairground preparing for the week of festivities.

Starting at 8 a.m. Tuesday will be the 4-H horse show which is expected to last all day. The annual parade will start making its way down the street at 6:30 p.m.

Fair Board President Steve Fritchen said fairgoers can expect to see some new things this year.

â??Everybody looks forward to the demo derby and we've made our demo pit quite a bit bigger this year so it'll be something to see this year. I'm very, very -- can't hardly wait to see what happens there. We moved our tractor pull track. We built a new tractor pull track for this year. I think it's going to be awesome. It's all new so we've done a lot of stuff out on the track this year to help improve some of the events around here,â?? said Fritchen.
