The LaRue County Fair got off to a wet start last week as rain canceled Thursday’s horse show.
High temperatures took care of the puddles and by Monday, the fairgrounds were in top condition for the tractor pull.
Monday marked also the crowning of a new Miss LaRue County Fair. Tessie Jo Embry, the 18-year-old daughter of Billy and Jill Embry, received the honor and was named Miss Congeniality by the other contestants.
Cassie Danielle Bright, the daughter of Connie Maxwell and Timmy Bright, was first runner-up and selected as “Most Photogenic.”
Tiffany Underwood, the daughter of Tony and Monica Underwood, was second runner-up.
Audrey-Anna Skaggs, the daughter of Jimbo and Sonya Skaggs, was third runner-up.
Norma Jean McDonald was named Mother of the Year by the LaRue County Homemakers.
