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.
