Today was the start of the Jackson County Fair (Medford is in Jackson County). The fair is one of, if not the, biggest annual events in Southern Oregon.
To commemorate, and probably enjoy the weather, the entire 6:30 show was live from the fair. Both live trucks and all anchors and reporters were at the Fairgrounds to perform the show.
I don't know how they were able to be as coolheaded and professional as they were with a country band playing a hundred feet away, curious fair-goers being intrigued by the camera crew and lights, and the sounds of the countless carnival rides and riders surrounding them. But they did it and did it well.
The Fair is hosting some fairly big musical names this week: The Beach Boys, Wynonna, Boys Like Girls, and Loverboy. Maybe I'll make it out there...
