Even if guests have bought a ticket, they will need to bring either a picture of their vaccine card or the actual card to get in. Despite COVID concerns, organizers were able to get plenty of local bands, artists, and big-name entertainers to come out this year.

All of the rides and stands are up and ready to go. The fair runs until Sept.19.
