The first day of this year’s Northwest Washington Fair offered a veritable cornucopia of food, fun, games -- and triple-digit temperatures. This year’s fair, a 10-day affair, has also been the stage for live music, demolition derby and rodeos, as well as the Small Animal Experience and the opening of the Farming for Life Experience. The photographs in this gallery represent some of the many happenings from the first week of this year's fair. (Photos by Lynden Tribune staff)
