West Virginia's second largest fair opened in Marion County Monday
The 81st Mannington District Fair began with a parade through town.
The week long event features a circus, games, carnival rides, livestock shows and beauty pageants.
Fair President Bob Thorn said there is plenty of food and fun for the whole family.
"A lot of people they plan their vacation around this fair. Some people come to Mannington one time a year, you know, just to meet their friends and families," Thorn said.
The Mannington District Fair has been going on since 1932.
