Ohio's oldest independent fairground hosted its annual Spring Fair over the weekend.

The Barlow Fair was originally built to encourage agriculture and the arts.

More than a century since the first fair, the theme hasn't changed.

Saturday's events included a quilt show, a tractor pull, even a pretty baby contest.

Some parents say they've been coming to the fairgrounds since they were kids themselves.

While the kids bounced around, organizers showcased their tractors and crafts.

Local quilters showed off their works, some of the quilts worth thousands of dollars.
