With 90-plus degree temperatures, people at the Seneca County Fair sweated it out in the Education Building to hear the results of this year's Junior Fair King and Queen Contest.
This year's 59th annual Junior Fair king and queen are Casey Wagner and Marissa Kirian.
"It's surprising," said Kirian, a senior at Hopewell-Loudon and a member of Hopewell-Loudon FFA.

Casey Wagner and Marissa Kirian were named king and queen of the 2012 Seneca County Fair Monday night.
She said she had not expected to win.
"It feels good to win and I'm honored to be a part," said Wagner, a Seneca East graduate and member of Seneca East FFA.
First runner-up fair queen was Sarah Faber, a member of New Riegel Raw Hide and Woolies 4-H Club.
"I never thought I would get this," Faber said.
Second runner-up fair queen was Sprite Severs, a member of Jolly Workers 4-H Club and an Old Fort High School graduate.
"It doesn't matter who won," Severs said. "We had a good court this year and we were all really good friends no matter what happened."
Last year's Seneca County Junior Fair King Jacob Clark and Queen Holly Metzger were masters of the ceremony.
Junior Fair king and queen votes were cast Saturday and Sunday by Junior Fair judges and exhibitors.
The king and queen each received $250 in local scholarships.
