Washington, Mo. – Earlier this afternoon the American Flag was raised high above the fair grounds with a cross on top.

It was a beautiful sight watching fair officials attaching the flag, making sure it never touched the ground.

Those who worked attaching the flag stood in silence as the red, white, and blue was slowly lifted high into the sky.

Watch video below as the flag is raised.
