“The Biggest Little Fair” in Ohio is back and taking over downtown Cheviot for the 159th year.

The four-day Harvest Home Fair starts with a parade on Thursday from the intersection of Harrison and Frances avenues to Harvest Home Park, where the rest of the weekend’s activities take place.

Through Sunday, fairgoers can check out live entertainment, carnival rides, 4-H animal and horticulture exhibits and horse, flower and art shows. There will be quaint contests with cash prizes for the best homemade beer, chili, salsa and wine, as well as prizes for the best in show in both sweet and bread baking, canning, needlework and more.
