That's entertainment. In this picture the fair queen contestants, along with last year's Logan County Fair queen, Sabra Boyd, put on a great rendition of "Diamonds Are a Girl's Best Friend." There is much more to see at the fair these last three days, so don't be a couch potato. Rather than sit at home clicking through reruns on the tube, come on out to the Logan County Fair. Enjoy great entertainment, great food and see all your friends and neighbors during this community gathering.

The Logan County Fair... Illinois' cleanest and best county fair!
