SEDALIA, Mo. (AP) –  The Missouri State Fair is getting under way this week, and the weather’s cooperating with daily highs predicted to be in the low-to-mid 80’s.

The annual 11-day event typically draws more than 300,000 to the fairgrounds in Sedalia.

Admission will cost only $2 on opening day Thursday for people who are 6 and older.

Events on the first day include a parade and farm toy show.

The grandstand performers will be country singers Jerrod Niemann and Candy Coburn.

Festivities will continue Friday with a barbecue contest and the coronation of the Missouri State Fair’s queen.
