When the weather changes from full-blown summer to the first inklings of fall, I have a term that I’ve used since I was about four – carnival weather! There’s a crispness in the air and the temperature is cooler…the perfect time to jump astride a beautifully decorated carousel horse and ride your cares away…. whether you’re seven or 70! And that crispness is definitely in the air right now!
In The Natural State, several long-time county fairs opened this week. The St. Francis County Fair in
Carroll County Fair
85th annual Randolph County Fair and Livestock Show
, and the
105th annual Benton County Fair
all opened their doors earlier this week.
Next week the
Hot Spring County Fair
118th annual Cleburne County Fair
, and the
Searcy County Fair
open the gates to the throngs of thrill-seeking, cotton candy-eating, fun-loving fans who can’t wait to experience the sights and sounds that can only be found at a carnival or fair.
Take a look at the

for more information on all the upcoming county fairs in The Natural State. Admit it…you’re thinking about a caramel apple or a pronto pup right now, aren’t you?
