Racine Roundup

The Racine Roundup aired on TMJ4 during the 4 O’Clock news on Thursday, July 27. This week, Racine County Eye editor Loren Lamoreaux came to viewers live from the Racine County Fair.

Ryan Jenkins and Carole Meekins were in the studio talking with Lamoreaux to discuss three community-based stories while they reported from the fairgrounds.

Plenty of activities, food, games, and things to do at the fair running through the weekend.
