The King County Fair opened the gates Thursday and ran through Sunday.
The fair enjoyed sunny skies and there were both old and new activities, animals, exhibits, music, food and frolic for all ages and interests, including Mutton Bustin’.
Among the entertainers was Professor Bamboozle entertaining kids and parents with magic tricks, illusions and balloon art. Carnival and animal rides, a tug o’ war and circus acts were a big hit.
