It's here! The Kern County Fair opens today, and runs through Sept. 30.

With a theme of "Fair Friends Forever!," the fair has something for everyone — time with friends, of course, but also lots of fun food, carnival rides, exhibits, shows, music, competitions, demonstrations and more.

The fair is encouraging the use of these hashtags: #KCFair18 and #FairFriendsForever.

Check out for new stories throughout the duration of the fair.
