Caption: NBC 10's Temi-Tope Adeleye reports on the first day of the Washington County Fair in Richmond, Rhode Island.

The fair was virtual two years ago due to the pandemic and last year, there were COVID-19 guidelines in place. However, everything appears to be back to normal this year. 

NBC 10 spoke with people who attended the fair on Wednesday. 

“We’re all in college together— and we’re all in the criminal justice program at the New England Institute of Technology and so we all decided this would be a fun outing to do together," said Nikki Clark, a fair-goer.  "Mya here comes here every year so it’s one of her favorite things to do and we all decided to come in and join in and have fun.”
