It’s Fair Time!

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



Forrest City



, the



Carroll County Fair



in



Berryville



, the



85th annual Randolph County Fair and Livestock Show



in



Pocahontas



, and the



105th annual Benton County Fair



in



Bentonville



all opened their doors earlier this week.


Next week the



Hot Spring County Fair



in



Malvern



, the



118th annual Cleburne County Fair



in



Heber Springs



, and the



Searcy County Fair



in



Marshall



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



Calendar of Events



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?

    I need a list of the 2009 County Fairs. I have tried your calender of events, but it gives all the events. I need to know the dates of the fairs for Sept. and Oct. This will help me plan for 2010.
    Thanks Joe
