The humidity and mud caused by the rain earlier this week didn't stop people from heading out to the Crawford County Fair on Wednesday afternoon.
The day started out with the 4-H and Open Rabbit shows. Some participants only had one rabbit, but others had as many as six, all hoping to win a purple ribbon.
Kids say whether they are participating or just watching the shows they enjoy it.
"It's fun if you have an animal or not because you can walk around and see animals and if your friends have animals you can always help," says seventh grade student Maddie Robison. "My friends helped me with the rabbits and stuff, so even if you don't have an animal, it's a lot of fun because you can go around and see the exhibits and stuff."
Other animals such as cattle and horses will be shown Thursday through Saturday.
