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."
