The Clatsop County Fair opened on Tuesday with signature rides, funnel cakes and 4-H competitions, along with a few changes, thanks to new manager John Lewis.

The fair will have monster truck rides, an antique tractor section and extreme jeep races on Saturday for the first time. Lewis hopes the attractions will cultivate renewed interest in the fair by locals.
