Snapshots From The Fair: Vendors Juice It Up As Temps Near 100

Jul 13, 2018

As the Oregon Country Fair commences, organizers are urging visitors to keep hydrated, stay cool, and pace themselves. While many temps are going to be in the upper 90s,  that heat wave means cold cash for those selling wares that can keep fairgoers cool and refreshed.  KLCC's Brian Bull checked in with one such vendor, Orange You Glad I Didn't Say 'Banana'?, right as the admission gates were opening this morning.
