For a week and a half, bands have played, demolition derbies have taken place, children have competed in Mutton Bustin', animals have been judged and petted, championship vegetables and fruits have been on display, and pigs have been raced, among other things. An estimated 190,000 guests are expected to pass through the entrance gates at the Spokane County Interstate Fair by the close of business on September 14.
