    While the Shelby County fair just celebrated its 156 years in existence, this was my first year attending. As a summer intern from the suburbs of Chicago, I had never attended a county fair — ever. I have been in Kentucky for three years attending the University of Kentucky for print journalism, but a county fair was still a whole new experience.
