Campers are welcome to spend a few days at the Effingham County Fairgrounds even though there's not going to be a traditional fair this year.
With the cancellation of the Effingham County Fair, it will be the first time harness racing will not be featured at the fairgrounds since 1945.
The Miss Effingham County Fair Queen pageant will be on Aug. 2 at 7:30 p.m. There will be no admittance, just streaming live on Effingham County Fair Facebook page. This year's contestants:
