FAIRFIELD, Iowa (KYOU) - The Jefferson County Fair began on Monday and was briefly put on pause Tuesday due to the weather.

Mike Filson, who is the Fair Board President, says so far the size of the crowd has been the same since previous years.

“It’s about a normal crowd and hopefully it’ll be a lot better as time goes on. After last year with covid, we hope that more people are willing to come out and do things. We’re hoping for a great fair.”

The events for the rest of the week will consist of mutton busting, dirt drags, quads, and more.

Edith Diers, who is a fair contestant this year, shared what competition she’ll be competing in and her excitement for this year’s fair.

“I absolutely love the fair, my dad is on the fair board. I’ll be showing bottle calves this year along with the Bill Riley Talent show.”

Elizabeth Tedrow, who is also competing this year, says she’s glad things are getting back to normal.

“I’m so excited to have the rides back and to hang out with more friends and not having to worry about getting other people sick or getting yourself sick.”
