Kaylea Kongar was crowned Miss Adams County on Sunday night as the Adams County 4-H Fair hit the ground running.
Activities pick up today, with the rabbit and sheep shows plus the Horse and Pony Show held this morning, followed by the poultry show in early afternoon.
The Starter Calf Show is on tap at 5, followed by the stage performance of Studio 180 at 6. The Grand Champion presentations will be made at 6:30, then the Decatur Dance Academy will take over the stage at 7.
Kongar, 19, daughter of Terry and Heather Kongar, was crowned on the stage last night.
First runnerup was Suzanne Smith, daughter of Mark and Vicki Smith. The second runnerup was Brooke Scheumann, daughter of Nolan and Corene Scheumann.
Other contestants were Erica Bluhm, Abbey Jauregui, Jennifer Miller, and Tazza Mosser.
Kongar also was named Miss Congeniality and Scheumann won the Viewer's Choice honor.
Miss Adams County of 2022, Sara Sipe, returned to the stage to crown her successor.
Heat is becoming an issue with fair participants and fair-goers. A high around 90 degrees was recorded at the fairgrounds in Monroe on Sunday.
Today's high is forecast to hit the 94-degree mark, followed by 99 on Tuesday and 97 on Wednesday.
Heat didn't seem to bother the annual Pork Producers supper, though, as the lines were long on Sunday — as usual.
