The 2015 edition of the Franklin County Fair opens tomorrow, July 18, and runs through July 25 at the Franklin County Fairgrounds in Hilliard.

Some of the family fun includes the Nationwide Children's Hospital Kids' Tent featuring interactive agricultural activities, a nearby petting zoo, beekeeping demonstrations and entertainer "Farmer Tom Walsh" sharing fun songs and stores from the farm.

The fair also will include a mix of nostalgic Fair favorites and new attractions - from the ferris wheel, tractor pulls and pie eating contests to CCAD art showcases, gospel, folk and rock performances, Dock Dogs and even mixed martial arts and professional boxing matches.
