In this video, you’ll take a Saturday stroll through the fairgrounds at dusk. Hope you enjoy these sights and sounds from the 2013 Johnson County Fair! Every August, thousands of Johnson Countians flock to the County Fair, where they know they’ll find loads of family friendly entertainment, rich foods, carnival rides, 4-H wonderfulness and lawn tractor demolition derbies!
As I entered the fairgrounds I immediately heard music, and was drawn to the Midway Stage, where the Ernest James Zydeco band was playing. Their music was the soundtrack in my ears as I walked through the fair and naturally became the soundtrack for the video. Thanks to Ernest James for the music – hear more at EJZydeco.com.
The pole vaulting shot at the end is from the third annual Gardner Street Pole Vault, which was going on right next to the Fair.
