State Fair of West Virginia Kicks Off

FAIRLEA, W.Va (WOAY) – Today was the first official day of the West Virginia State Fair. 

The morning was full of shows and contests, and then this afternoon the rides and the food vendors opened up at 2. Visitors came in from all over the country including these visitors from Florida who were some of the first to ride the Ring of Fire. 
“Very fun and when we got off we got very dizzy,” Gabriele Roselli said.
All morning while the rides were closed, crews were inspecting every single ride to make sure they were ready for the visitors.
