Fair goers can buy tickets at the fairgrounds office starting at 8:00 a.m. On-line sales will begin at 10:00 a.m.at www.douglasfairgrounds.com.
The line for tickets began Thursday just before 12:00 p.m. when David Mack showed up waiting to buy tickets for three of the shows. Mack said he was able to get in line early due to having some days off from his job.
The Douglas County Fair is happening August 9th through the 12th.
