The Klickitat County Fair Board has decided on this year's fair dates and theme.
This year, the county fair -- held at the Klickitat County Fairgrounds in Goldendale -- will run Aug. 25-Aug. 28. The theme will be "Denim and Dust."
The 2011 Klickitat County Fair & Rodeo Queen is Justine Partlow of Goldendale.
