Royalty crowned at the fair

A hot July afternoon was the setting for the opening celebrations for the 161st Annual Clermont County Fair. The fair parade through Owensville drew a large crowd as did the crowning of the 2010 King and Queen Roger Sannes and Olivia Enriquez.

The temperature peaked in the 90’s and many of the parade floats rewarded the crowds lining the streets by spraying them with water from squirt guns or handing out water in bottles.

The parade lasted for more than an hour and many of the spectators followed the last floats into the fairgrounds to take advantage of free admission.
