“It’s just a large family reunion- a great community event,” said David Thomas, Hancock County Agricultural Society operations manager. “It’s free. Doesn’t cost anything to come to it. It’s put on for absolutely no cost to the people that want to come and we fill this fairgrounds every year. It’s a tradition to come here on the Fourth of July.”

This isn't the end of the Fourth of July celebration as there will also be a parade Thursday morning.
