67th Edmonson County Fair kicks off tomorrow!
No school for kiddos on fair day
BROWNSVILLE, Ky. – The Edmonson County Lions Club is proud to host their 67th county fair, a staple in the community since 1955.
Starting next Friday morning, kids are out of school to celebrate the first day of the festivities, beginning with their traditional parade at 9 a.m.
This year’s 67th fair celebrates “New beginnings”. The fair’s theme is an ode to new seats in local legislation, a full-fair return post-pandemic, and most importantly, a wish: a hope new faces will step in and step up to the fair’s leadership positions, so the fair can soon surpass its legacy.
Lions Club Member and Farm Bureau Fair Board Representative Corey Culbreth recalled, “Growing up, we went to the fair all the time. The fair was like the greatest thing ever…. We need involvement from other organizations, the schools, and other people to really give their time if they want the fair to be what they want it to be.”
Be sure to stop by the fair’s mud run, 4h exhibits, pageants, parade and so many more activities spanning through Saturday.
Edmonson County Lions Club President and Fair Board Secretary-Treasurer Jimmie Duvall encourages you to, “Come out! Try to come every night. Be sure not to eat before you get there. If you have some spare time and you’d like to volunteer to help at the fair, we’d love to have you!”
Note that the fair’s famous car show has moved now to the last day of the fair, next Saturday the 17th.
The Lion’s Club says they’re excited to use the fair’s funding to help out their community and contribute towards the future fairs.
