Fairgoers welcome cooler temps

Boone Central High School band and cheerleaders provided enthusiasm for the annual Fair Parade.Fair Board members were thankful for cooler temperatures to open the 2012 Boone County Fair last weekend.

The fair events so far have had good attendance, but there is room for improvement, according to Fair Board Chairman Dave Noble.

Friday’s temperatures reached a blistering 100 degrees, but the weekend brought cooler weather in the 80s with a light breeze.

Sunday afternoon’s annual Fair Parade was bigger than last year, with about 84 total entries and 100 units, according to Lisa Mangelsen, parade chairman.
