The Adams County Fair begins this week and has a number of highlights. We've already told you about Chris Cagle performing at the fair this Friday night, but that's just the tip of the iceberg.  Sure, there are the events that happen every year at the fair like the Miss Adams County Fair pageant and the 4H and FFA events, bull riding, demo derby, etc.  But, if you would like a complete list, here you go courtesy of the Adams County Fair website.
