The 200th Jefferson County Fair kicks off Tuesday morning.
The rides were going up Monday and vendors were getting ready.
There something new to the fair this year: admission is free.
"We're hoping it makes for a lot more people here, so that's our big thing," fair president Bob Simpson said. "F.X. Caprara came up with the sponsorship and it's to help the fair allow everybody to come to the fair free. We like that idea."
