Mercer County Fair kicks off at Pikeview

ATHENS, W. Va (WVVA)-- The Mercer County Fair began Friday at Pikeview High School.

It has everything from funnel cakes to rodeos, concerts, and wood carving-- not to mention the amusement rides.

President Dusti Snider tells WVVA it's a long-standing tradition in Mercer County, and this year even vendors from the surrounding area were invited to the fair.

The Little Ponderosa Zoo set up a petting zoo at the fair, featuring exotic animals that were all rescued and now reside at the zoo.

Exhibits from community organizations, as well as winners of produce contests and show tractors, were also display.

The fair continues into Saturday with events like the frying pan throwing contest, a dog show, and the Peters Mountain Antique Tractor Pull.
