Eighty-six years after the first Westfield Fair, organizers said they drew their largest crowd ever this weekend.
For the second year in a row, mud-bogging was on the agenda for Sunday, which was the final day of the fair.
That followed Saturday's demolition derby.
As one would expect, there were plenty of rides and games as well.
The fair's president said there is also an educational side to the three-day event.
"The agricultural portion of the fair, we really try to promote that through 4-H and adults," said Mary Johnson. "On Saturday, it's all youth showing their dairy and beef cattle and sheep. On Sunday, it's the adults showing."
Johnson added that what makes the fair so unique is that there are no employees.
Everyone volunteers their time to make the weekend happen.
