Today is Scholar Students Day, and there are admission specials for every day of the fair, including new this year, three-dollar general admission on Thursday. Opening ceremonies are at 9am, the fair opens to the public at 10am, and runs through Sunday. About 100-thousand people, or the entire population of Nevada County will attend the fair.
