Although some of the events had to be canceled due to inclement weather, the annual Central Iowa Fair began Wednesday with a series of activities that culminated with the crowning of Ella Wertz as 2024 CIF Queen and Kenzie Carpenter as Princess. Wertz, a 2024 graduate of West Marshall High School from State Center, will attend the University of Iowa in the fall and serve her country through the school’s ROTC program.

The fair continues Thursday, Friday and Saturday. For a complete schedule of events, see page 11 of today’s Times-Republican.
