the hot weather, the 273rd Fredericksburg Agricultural Fair kicks off today at 3 p.m. Organizers trace the back to a 1738 order from the Virginia House of Burgess to hold a fair two times a year to sell "cattle, provisions, goods, wares, and all kinds of merchandise."Following World War II, the fair was restarted in 1948, and has been held every year since then.
