It's the 100th year of the Kern County fair and all workers are excited to have the fair back in town!

23ABC's Mike Boyce speaks with Kern County fair's CEO Mike Olcott to discuss what they're doing to make sure residents won't have to deal with dust and air quality problems.

Also, the livestock tent has lots of excitement with Kern County 4H programs.

Jerry Moffatt, one of the directors with the Kern Valley 4H Dairy Project says students help raise a young cow calf for about a year, and the highlight of their project is to bring it to the Kern County Fair. It helps teach the young girls and boys about having good work ethic and pride in their work. 

One of the young men in the 4H program, Weston Hyer, is very excited about the fair this year because his heifer cow is currently pregnant and is due to give birth in about 5 days which will occur at the fair. There is a birthing pen that fairgoers can witness a once-in-a-lifetime opporunity to watch the cow give birth.
