A summer tradition for more than a century wraps up it's 8-day run today.  The 144th annual Jersey County Fair has had plenty of horsepower on display at the grandstand this weekend, with tractor and truck pulls the past two days, and the traditional demo derby putting the wraps on the fair tonight.

Jersey County Fair Board President Phil Ringhausen says the derby has a large following, and participants as well as fans come from all over the county.

Ringhausen comments

Admission to the fairgrounds is 2-dollars per person, with kids 12 and under admitted free.  Admission to the grandstand tonight is $10 for everyone, infield or grandstand.  For a complete schedule of events, click here: http://www.jerseycountyfair.com/
