TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTWO/WAWV) — A local fair is making its way to the Wabash Valley Fairgrounds this weekend.

The Vigo County Fair had its kick off Thursday evening to thank the community members, sponsors, and promoters. The fair will be welcoming back the 4-Her’s and their families, Drew Exposition Carnival, and other events including a concert, with country stars Josh Turner and Joe Nichols on July 17.

Last year, many of the events scheduled were cancelled due to the rain. However, Fairgrounds manager Jenny Hamilton said everyone is excited to rebound and get the fair started.

“Super excited to be back in action. I think this is going to be our final first like normal normal year. Last year we had a lot of rain. So, we had to cancel a lot of our events. But this year we’re really looking forward to a great week,” Hamilton said.

The Vigo County Fair will run from July 9 until the 16.
