It’s that wonderful time of year when children get excited because the Newton County Fair has come to town! With rides, livestock, and food of every kind available to enjoy, it is sure to be fun for the whole family.
Students from Burkeville, Newton and Deweyville FFA and 4-H get to “strut their stuff” and show how hard they have been working with their animals. The livestock shows certainly give them the opportunity to display the work they’ve invested toward their project.
Families from all over the area come out to enjoy the entertainment and there is plenty of entertainment planned this year, with singers and gymnasts and animals to boot. (No pun intended.)
The opening ceremony is planned for 7 p.m. Tuesday evening and the Fair Sweethearts will be announced. The carnival will begin running Wednesday night. Armbands are available at the ticket booths for $25 this year. Start making plans now to attend. It’s family friendly and sure to entertain all ages. Come out and enjoy the fantastic food and fun.
