The Greene County Fair, boasting a few new carnival rides and more booths than last year, concludes today.

Highlighting the finale of the 64th annual fair is the red-headed Christian trio, Red Roots, and night two of the extremely popular Demolition Derby.

"The derby has been great -- really packed!" Fair President Bobby Holt said. "We had 18 cars show up on the first day."

He added, "I encourage folks to come out tonight. We've got a really good night tonight."

At 8:15 p.m. Friday, there were 5,404 people in attendance at the fair, Holt said.

Fairgoers on Friday enjoyed warm temperatures and clear skies -- perfect fair weather.

"The midway is absolutely jam-packed," Holt said Friday night. "Hopefully the weather will hold and we'll see the same kind of response Saturday."

Today's schedule includes:

* Cow Buddies at 10:30 a.m.

* Showmanship at 11 a.m.
