There’s a country saying that it always rains during county fair week and that was true this week for the Independence County Fair. On Tuesday, areas of the county received .10 inch of rain. On Wednesday the area saw 0.5 inch of rain. There was light rain on Wednesday, but Thursday and Friday were sunny with occasional clouds. Midway rides at the fair were provided by Miller Spectacular Shows out of Greenbrier. There were pageants, livestock shows, concessions, and veterans appreciation. Country music shows filled the night air with performances by Ronnie McDowell on Thursday, Colin Raye on Friday, and Jimmy Fortune of the Statler Brothers is performing tonight at 8 p.m.
