The 59th annual Gwinnett County Fair comes to an end today and the fairgrounds saw thousands come out each day to enjoy the rides, games, food and exhibits.

Live music included artists John Berry, Candi Carpenter, Bobby Tomberlin, Billy Crash Craddock, Waymore’s Outlaws and Leipers Fork Bluegrass.

One of the annual highlights each year is the Miss Gwinnett pageant, which was won by Grayson High School graduate Courtney Hinesley.

As another year comes to an end, we look back at the fun and get ready for next year with photos by Brendan Sullivan.
