And then it was gone. The bustling carnival ride area is clear and clean as we say goodbye to the 2009 Logan County Fair. Below are the final pictorials of the week's events and we thank all of our sponsors for allowing us this opportunity to give proper coverage to this iconic Logan County event. And so we say goodbye with this picture, the 252nd picture we have published of the 2009 Logan County Fair. Whew! What a week it was.
