The closing of this year’s Kansas State Fair — at least the public parts — will have no effect on the upcoming Allen County Fair.

In fact, this year’s renditions of the county and state fairs should be comparable in significant ways.

The Allen County Fair, which kicks off this weekend at Iola’s Riverside Park, will revolve exclusively around 4-H members and their entries.
