9/2/15 – 5:17 A.M.
The 2015 fair season rolls into Hancock County today. Wednesday is both Senior Citizens and Veterans Day, which means $2 admission for those who have served in the military or are 60-years-old and older.
The big events for the day will include opening ceremonies in the south grandstand at 7:30 p.m. That will be followed by the crowning of the king and queen and the Hancock County Marching Band Show.
Several open class and junior fair competitions get underway today as well. We have the complete schedule on our website.
The fair runs through Labor Day.
