Nothing says summer more than a county fair, and the Hamilton County Fair is ready to start up for the 155th time. Last years attendance was up 56 percent from 2008, and they look forward to an even bigger turnout. There will be plenty of rides, contests, live entertainment and fair food classics like funnel cake and basically anything edible that can be put on a stick. There will be pie, art, photography and animal contests. At 7 p.m. Wednesday there’s a demolition derby, a Tough Truck Competition at 7:30 p.m. Friday and Derek Allen and Southern Junction will play Thursday and Saturday. 4-11 p.m. Wednesday-Friday; 11 a.m.-11 p.m. Saturday at 7801 Anthony Wayne Avenue, Cincinnati, 513-821-1356.
