Not only can area residents count on the return of the Howard County Fair this year — Sept. 29-Oct. 1 — but parents will appreciate that it will more kid-friendly than ever.
“We took a year off, but we are coming back refreshed this year,” said John Nichols, Howard County Fair board member.
The fair returns with a few old favorites and a few new shows. The Queen Contest will return as will the Kountry Kids Contest. Entries for both can be placed at Klassic Kleaners, Flo-lite and Posey Cotton. There will be no entry free for either contest and numerous prizes will be awarded for both. Deadline for the Queen Contest is Sept. 27 and the Kountry Kid entrants have until 7 p.m. Friday, Sept. 30.
