From 13 News The Riley County Fair is heating up with the weather this weekend.

The smells of delicious barbecue filled the air Friday, as Day 2 of the Fair got under at CICO Park in Wildcat Country.

Area 4H members filled the fairground area with their livestock exhibits, enjoying food from Blue Valley Pork Producers, and entertainment from the Ottaway Amusement Carnival. Friday featured the big Sheep Show, and "Tough Enough to Wear Pink Night" at the Kaw Valley Rodeo. Money raised at the Rodeo will help the Kansas State Johnson Cancer Research Center.

There will dairy judging Saturday, along with rabbit judging, bucket calf and dairy goat judging. Swine show activities begin at 7pm Saturday, and it'll be Championship Night at the Kaw Valley Rodeo.

In Topeka, it wasn't just the sounds of animals the fair fans were hearing. Landon Arena was packed with fans, who came to the free concert put on by the melodious singing group of six, "Six Appeal."

Their 8pm show was preceded by the locally well-known Cruzline Drumline. Some of Friday's top Shawnee County Fair attractions in the arena were the Beef Show and Bucket Calf Show. Fun events kick off Saturday morning at 8:30 with Goat Show, and a little celebrity goat milking tossed in, too, in the 1:45 edition. The Fair also features two Porubsky's pickle-eating contests for kids, and grownups at 11:45 and 12:15.
