It's mid-September, fall is fast approaching and that can only mean one thing: It's fair time. Festivities kick off Wednesday for the 2019 Kern County Fair, which runs through Sept. 29. All hands were on deck at the fairgrounds Monday as vendors, carnival workers and food and beverage concessionaires set up in anticipation for the annual event.
