Cotton candy and carousels spun through the air all week at the Malheur County Fair, which spanned Tuesday through Saturday, Aug. 2-6, at the Desert Sage Event Center. Fresh-popped popcorn, cuddly goats, and stomach-dropping carnival rides were just a few of the fair's offerings. There were concerts, ropings and rodeo. There were competitions and ribbons and awards.
In all, thousands participated in or enjoyed one of the highlights of summer in Malheur County.
