The annual Franklin County Fair is in full swing this week with a variety of events and entertainment. It ends on Saturday with the Bull Bonanza.

“Things are going really well,” fair committee chair Wes Harris said. “We expect a good fair week with lots of things going on today through Saturday that should appeal to everyone.

“We have lots of excellent entertainment ahead of us, vendors and food booths. I hope the public supports us,” he said. “We invite everyone to come out this week and enjoy what we have to offer.”
