fun this week
The Marshall County Fairgrounds Association has four days of family entertainment lined up this week. The fair opens Wednesday, July 27, with loads of activities scheduled every day through Saturday, July 30.
County fairs bring nostalgia to the older folk and fresh excitement to the young, according to Beth Overall, manager of the fairgrounds. The Association just pulled off a wonderful 4-H district competition three weeks ago, giving 150 youngsters from 19 counties a chance to meet, compete and make new friends.
This weekends activities are an opportunity to continue in the old-time county fair tradition of carnival rides for the kids, a rodeo to be enjoyed by all ages, arts and crafts and cooking exhibitions, and a contest to name Miss Marshall County.
Admission to the fairgrounds and parking is free.
The last Marshall County Fair was two years ago. The Marshall County Fairgrounds Association is sponsoring the fair again this year to keep the tradition alive. Make sure to take advantage of this opportunity to support community-based summer fun and come out and meet new friends.
The fairgrounds is located on Highway 7 North, about a mile outside the Holly Springs city limits.
