It's got a bit of everything and it begins today.
The Boone County Fair is underway and besides the food and the rides, there's livestock judging and tractor pulls along with music.
Fair officials say they're looking forward to a great week ahead.
"It's an educational experience for everybody to enjoy, and we look for the happy faces coming and going at the fair, and that's what we look for and we live for," says Lyle Lee, president of the Boone County Fair. "And this is the happiest week of the year. This is better than Christmas to us."
The Boone County Fair wraps up Sunday with a couple of demolition derbies.
