The longest continuously operating fair in the country opened around noon Tuesday and anchor Jeff Cole was there live for 7 News At Noon.
This is the Jefferson County Fair's 200th year and this year admission is free -- although you still have to pay for your games, rides and food.
The free admission is thanks to F.X. Caprara Car Companies. Charlie Caprara was with Cole to talk about it.
You can see their conversation in the video.
