From sun up to sun down, the Douglas County Fair drew good-sized crowds during its four-day run that wrapped up on Sunday. However, the scorching mid-day heat on the weekend may have discouraged some from going to the fair. A special souvenir edition of the Douglas County Fair will be printed in Friday's newspaper.
