Lima Ohio -
Thousands of screaming fans and bumper to bumper traffic as the Allen County Fair brings an up and coming star to Lima.
Nickelodeon actress and singer Victoria Justice brought the crowd to a screaming ovation when she took the stage. Enjoying the concert, Karen Folay and her three grand daughters. Victoria's concert was an opportunity for the whole family to come out and enjoy some family-friendly music. If it weren't for her grand kids, Karen says she probably wouldn't be there.
A fan of Victoria, Lindsay came all the way from Texas to hear her idol sing. With this being her first concert, Lindsay expected one thing, to be blown away by Victoria's performance. "I just want her to blow my ears out; that's all I expect of her," Lindsay said.
This year's act drew younger crowds for the second consecutive year, after Allen County Fair Manager Jay Begg choose not to bring in older rock and roll acts. This change of pace seems to be bringing more people to the concerts, as parents use this time to spend with their kids.
Also taking the stage with Victoria, singer, dancer and actor Max Schneider.
While Victoria Justice brought out a younger crowd and screaming girls, country star Dierks Bentley will take the stage tomorrow night at 8PM.
