KNOXVILLE, Iowa -- The Iowa State Fair is still 26-days away but you can get your fair fix this weekend in Knoxville.
The Marion County Fair opened Friday at the Knoxville Raceway. This year's theme is, "Boots and Country Roots.".
The big draw is the livestock competitions.
“We have about 1,100 animals entered in the fair and it’s a real county celebration,” says Brian Steckel with the fair.
The livestock judging begins Saturday and the fair runs through Thursday.
