    The Elkhart County 4-H Fair is running on all cylinders as it heads into its second full day of festivities Saturday, July 18.

    If you’re planning to attend, here are some things to keep an eye out for.


    Temperatures will start out in the mid-60s Saturday morning and steadily climb to 80 degrees by 3 p.m., AccuWeather predicts.

    Skies will be partly cloudy throughout the day with a 25 percent chance of rain in the afternoon.

    Temperatures will dip into the mid-70s in the evening hours.


    Some event highlights throughout Saturday include a tiger show, strongman and arm wrestling competitions and a free performance by 3 Doors Down.
