After a week of rides, food, and fun, the Josephine County Fair celebrates its final day.

NBC-5's Roma Villavicencio went to the fair and joins us live from our newsroom with more, Roma?

That's right Kyle, Ii was at the JoCo Fairgrounds earlier and there's a lot to see.

This years theme is 99 years of country charm. A Ferris wheel, interactive robot, lots of food, and animals are just some of the attractions that fair manager Mary Groves says made it a full house.

"We went back to a good family fair, brought back all the things people like and its been great this year."

Groves says the fair has been extremely busy this year.

Even though the fairgrounds are in financial troubles, she says they will definitely be celebrating a hundred years next summer.

Groves didn't give me any numbers as to how much the fair has made, but she says after she's done tearing everything down tomorrow, she'll be taking a look at those numbers.
