Fair officials say much of the fun and events begin Tuesday. They are hoping the rain doesn't keep too many people away for the week.

"It's going good. I'm hoping for a great turnout. I love to see people walking around and having a great time, even the little kids," Lucas County Fair Board Member Jodi Flores said. "So hopefully we can get through it this week, weather permitting, but I'm hoping people just come out and see it."

On Tuesday, first responders get free admission to the fair for First Responders Day, then Senior and Veteran Day is on Wednesday.
