Johnson County Fairgrounds embrace another year of festivities

With more than 70,000 people visiting annually, the 2017 Johnson County Fair brought friends and family together for three days of festivities.

Victorious cattle moos, musical performances and euphoric carnival riders’ shouts filled the air at the Johnson County Fair Grounds for the annual Johnson County Fair last week. The fair started July 24 and ended with a bang July 27 to a show of fireworks that left festival goers eager for next year’s fair.
