Wednesday, August 8, marked the opening of the 54th annual Wirt County Fair.

For four days kids get to enjoy several carnival rides, games and a petting zoo.

The fair also boasted live entertainment from the Wirt County High School Band plus a little miss and mister pageant.

As one of the last fairs before school starts, opening day featured everything for the entire family.

"Well I think this week here at the Wirt County Fair gives the opportunity for friends and family to come back home. It's kind of like a family reunion for everyone and it's a time for everyone to celebrate and the end of summer is coming to a close and an opportunity for everyone to see everyone once again," says Wirt County Fair Association 2nd Vice President, Donald Sheppard.

The last day of the Wirt County Fair is Saturday, August 10th.
