For vendors, 4-H club members and other fair workers, Monday was the final day of preparation before the 2019 Douglas County Fair begins its five-day run Tuesday.

Animals were washed, trimmed and made as comfortable as possible in the 90-degree heat, and final touches were made on booths along with many other preparations behind the scenes.

Gates open at 7 a.m. and close at 11 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday. Fairgoers have the option to pay $8 for parking or ride the free fair bus, which leaves from Roseburg High School, First Student Bus Lot in Green and the Douglas County Courthouse.
