LEBANON, Ohio - The Warren County Fair opens on Tuesday.
The fair will be one day shorter this year when it opens for its five-day run.
Like last year, more than 1,000 children and teens are participating in the Junior Fair through their 4-H clubs. But new this year is the addition of wood carvers who will do four shows each day.
A parade on Tuesday at 7 p.m. will feature more than 75 groups following the Lebanon High School marching band around the track. Ten hot air balloons will also launch from the infield of the track.
The fair runs from Tuesday through Saturday and is open from 8 a.m. until 11 p.m. The Warren County Fairgrounds are at 665 North Broadway, Lebanon, OH 45036.
