“This year’s fair theme says it all. It’s going to be ‘A Barn Good Time.’ In addition to a diverse and impressive concert lineup, fairgoers are in for a treat with fabulous food vendors, delightful exhibits, amazing carnival, games, plen-ty of live music on the grounds and high-energy arena events. Of course, at the heart of our Fair are our amazing exhibits. I want to remind everyone that there’s plenty of time to enter their baked goods, artwork, photography and other exhibit opportunities. It’s fun to compete and even more fun to bring home a blue ribbon! This is the time of year that our families, friends, neighbors and entire communities come together to make memories that last a life-time. It’s going to be a terrific fair season,” said Board of Director President, Angie Hughes.
