Everything is just about in place for you to come out and enjoy the 2007 Southern Kentucky Fair. On July 22, 2007, vendors and carnival rides arrived and were getting set up .

Bobby Harrod has been coming to the Southern Kentucky Fair since he was six and makes it a point to keep coming back year-after-year.

"If you've never seen one, you need to come and I guarantee you will come back," Harrod said.

He said he goes to them all, but this one is by far the best.

"There's no comparison this fair's got them beat 100-to-one," he assured.

The Demolition Derby is just one of the many events scheduled for the 2007 fair. This year's chairman, Rick Adams, said he has high hopes for the fair.

"My hope is that it will be the largest fair and everybody in Warren and surrounding counties comes out so we can raise money to put back into the community," Adams explained.

The money the Bowling Green Jaycees raise at the fair goes back to the Jaycees for special projects they put on, such as Christmas For Kids.

"Without the fair, there's not enough money to put back into the community and a lot of hearts would be broken at Christmas time and we don't want to see that," Adams said.

The fair is held at the Southern Kentucky Fairgrounds inside Lampkin Park. The fair runs all week long and gates open at 5 p.m. through the week and close at 11 p.m.

The fair concludes July 28.
