The 100th Vanderburgh County Fair has officially begun. 

The events kicked off Monday morning with several 4-H events like the pygmy goat show and the dog obedience show. 

Later tonight, the 100th Vanderburgh County Fair Queen will be crowned. 

As the week goes on, the 4-H will be having livestock shows each morning. Grandstand events will happen througout the afternoon and in to the evening.

Fair organizers are expecting upwards of 80,000 people to attend the events throughout the week. 

Last year's county fair was cancelled because of the pandemic.

Because the Delta variant has been causing cases to rise once again, fair organizers have added hand sanitizing and handwashing stations around the fairgrounds. They are also asking people to practice social distancing when possible.

Admission to the fair is $10 and ride armband tickets are $22. 

Firearms, alcoholic beverages, and animals are not allowed on the fairgrounds.

Today's high temperature of 87° was our warmest in a week and a half - we last climbed that high on the afternoon of September 18th when we tipped the scales at 88°. The remainder of the evening will remain quite mild under clear skies; expect temperatures to first fall to 83° by dinnertime before dropping to 73° by 10PM. The clear skies and weak southerly wind flow will help keep temperatures relatively stable during the overnight and predawn hours - we'll wake up to a morning low of just 62° early Wednesday morning.
