The 168th Allen County Fair is just 8 days away and the fair board wanted to take time to thank some of the sponsors that make the fair one of the biggest in the State of Ohio. 

One of the staples of the annual kick-off dinner is the naming of the king and queen. Stephen Parthemore of Bath was named this year’s king and Mallory Austin from Allen East was picked to be this year’s queen. Both are longtime members of 4-H and are excited to rule over the fair. 

“Getting to see all the different events, going to all the Junior Fair stuff, going to the Senior Fair stuff, just getting to meet and see different things at the fair,” said Mallory Austin, 2018 Allen County Fair Queen.

“Inspire the younger kids and everything like that. When I was small that is how I got into 4-H. Getting inspired by the older kids, especially like the royalty and things like that,” said Stephen Parthemore, 2018 Allen County Fair King.

Also named to the courts was Prince Lucas Phillips and Princess Sophie Trent both from Perry. The court will have one of their first official acts as royalty this Sunday in the Allen County Fair Parade which starts at 2 p.m. and runs through downtown Lima.
