No fair rides explanation Print E-mail

The Pendleton County Fair Board wants the residents of Pendleton County to know the reason why there will be no carnival rides at this year's fair.

The fair board always books the carnival, same one they have used for years, at the yearly meeting in Louisville every year. This year, however, the carnival wanted the fair board to move the date of the fair up to mid-June.

The county fairs are set at usually the same time each year. One reason they can't at the last minute change dates is because of the kids and their livestock projects, weigh-in etc. To get a carnival booked for a fair has to be done a lot earlier and to get one at the last minute is almost impossible.
