LANCASTER - Friday night's attendance at the Garrard County Fair soared to 2,986, an increase over 200 from last year, said Fair Board Chairman Richard Arnold.
If the same amount was achieved on Saturday night, then the fair will have hit an all-time record.
There were four different contests of the evening, including the adult/child pedal pull, small animal, dog show and mud slings (four-wheeler and vehicles). Results fromthe mud slings and pedal pulls are not yet available.
There were only two entries in the small animal show and both won. Meagan Cole won with her ferret, and Peyton Crossfield won with a hamster.
