Photos: Freaks and Geeks -- and Everyone Else -- at the Denver County Fair

Over the weekend, the fourth annual Denver County Fair brought everything Denver -- from pot and paraphernalia vendors in the first-ever county fair Pot Pavilion to drag queens and lucha libre wrestlers and pretty contortionists in the Freak Show -- to the National Western Complex for a nonstop weekend of eating contests, dog agility competitions, fair food, chicken bingo and a million other things. Photographer Brandon Marshall brought back these images of the Denver County Fair's people and more.

KEEP WESTWORD FREE... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we'd like to keep it that way. With local media under siege, it's more important than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" program, allowing us to keep offering readers access to our incisive coverage of local news, food and culture with no paywalls.
Susan Froyd started writing for Westword as the "Thrills" editor in 1992 and never quite left the fold. These days she still freelances for the paper in addition to walking her dogs, enjoying cheap ethnic food and reading voraciously. Sometimes she writes poetry.
