Tuesday, Aug. 13

The Southwest Washington Fair runs Tuesday through Sunday, showing off the agricultural roots of Lewis County. The midway lights up by night as crowds line up to be next on their favorite thrill ride, and the musical entertainment packs out multiple stages throughout the course of the week. Sample the food offerings from more vendors than you can shake a stick at. See the artful eyes and photography from people from around our region. Experience the excitement of the annual rodeo that packs the grandstands. For more information, including exhibit entry forms, prices and more, go to southwestwashingtonfair.net.
