ALEXANDRIA, KY (FOX19) -
Founded in 1793, Alexandria, Ky. is one of the dual county seats of Campbell County, along with Newport.
A largely rural community, Alexandria has grown in recent years with the expansion of Northern Kentucky University. However, each year, the community celebrates its rural heritage with the Alexandria Fair and Horse Show.
Running since 1856, the Fair and Horse Show has activities for the whole family, including rides, pageants, petting zoos and more.
This year's Fair and Horse Show begins Friday, August 29, running through Monday, September 1.
