There is still time to grab a booth space for the 2012 Howard County Fair.
The fair, set for Sept. 27-29, will once again take place at the Howard County Fairbarn. Gates will open from 5 p.m. until 10 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 27 and Friday, Sept. 28 and from 10 a.m. until 10 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 29.
â€śAt this time, we are trying to get the vendors lined up for this yearâ€™s fair,â€ť John Paul Nichols, Howard County Fair publicity director, said.
Last year, there were more than 50 booths in the fair. Booth spaces are available for profit and non-profit vendors.
â€śWe are hoping to draw in more vendors than we did last year,â€ť Nichols said.
Indoor booths are $175 and outdoor spaces are available for $250.
â€śThe ideal situation would be to sell out and fill up the fair barn with vendors,â€ť Nichols said.
In addition to purchasing booth space, memberships are available. Money from memberships helps fund improvement projects in order to make the fair better each year.
â€śAs a small town fair, we constantly strive to improve our county fair while being restricted by a small budget,â€ť he said. â€śWe want to thank all those who help and give to the fair.â€ť
