Big crowd enjoys the fair
Judging by the number of people in attendance, it was another successful Douglas County Fair.
Had Thursday's weather been a little bit better, it could have been a record-breaking year, according to Dick Gulbranson, Douglas County fair board secretary.
The four-day event boasted about 48,000 for its attendance, which is down about 500 from last year, said Gulbranson.
"It was just about a record attendance," he said in an interview Monday afternoon.
