The 78th Marion County Fair came off as planned, with hot temperatures and a Saturday rain shower thrown in for good measure. With dad at the controls of their all-terrain vehicle, one youngster took great pleasure in tossing candy to the children lining Main Street during the parade on Wendesday. Politicians were plentiful. Roger Hannaford, running for the 70th District Kansas House seat, waves to the crowd in the hope of drawing votes. Jack Glasscock gives his best effort in the Van De Creek pedal-tractor pull on Wednesday. He placed second in the 4-year-old division. Scott Schultz's car caught fire during the demolition derby on Saturday and Schultz had to bail out. He finished fourth, though. Brandon Klassen, son of Dale and Kay Klassen, makes way through the challenge course during the ?Thrills & Spills? competition on Friday evening.
