Wow, what a fair!

Picture-perfect, sunny weather - not too hot, not too cold - helped boost attendance to the Douglas County Fair.


But the turnout likely fell short of a record breaker.

The numbers are still being tallied, but it appears the four-day total attendance will be up just slightly from last year's 45,000 - shy of the 50,000 the fair organizers were hoping for.
