COLUMBIANA, Ohio (WYTV) – It is fair time once again in Columbiana County.
Opening ceremonies were held Monday night for the fair, which runs through Sunday night. This year, the Ohio Department of Agriculture honored the Fox family for operating a family farm in the county for more than 200 years.
It started out as a dairy farm. Family members now live in other parts of the country but lease out the land so it stays an operational farm.
“One of the things that meant the most to my uncle who we inherited the farm from was to keep it in the family as long as possible. One of the things he struggled with over the years was to put the pieces together to come into the Centennial Farm Program, so this is a distinct honor and pleasure to accept it on his behalf,” farm owner Sandra Clark said.
Also taking place at Monday night’s opening ceremonies was the crowning of the fair king and queen. Fair admission is $8 and that includes the rides. Admission is just $6 if you get there before 3 p.m. Tuesday through Friday.
