WAPAKONETA - Excessive heat early in the week took its toll on animals and attendance at this year's Auglaize County Fair.

Fair manager Fred Piehl said the week started slow with temperatures above 90 degrees Monday and Tuesday. However, crowds increased as the air cooled, bringing attendance to normal levels. [More]
