With the Boone County Fair well underway, contestants lined up on Tuesday for various competitions, including the Boone County Fair Baby Contest and the royalty pageants to determine this year's Little Miss, Little Mister, Princess, Teen Queen and Queen of the fair. As the sun began to dip below the horizon, golden light bathed over the games and rides of the carnival, which opened Tuesday and will remain open through Saturday.
