The Coffee County Fair celebrated 162 years of family fun this month. Opening ceremony was held on Monday night at 5 p.m. with rides commencing until Saturday night. There were new deals for tickets every night last week including $20 hand stamp day, dollar day, two for one night and more.
The featured rides this year included flying circus, bull riding, alter ego, nemesis and many more. Other activities included Nick’s Kids Show, scheduled every afternoon this week, live music, pageants, tractor races, pet shows and animals on display at the livestock barn.
Along with fair concessions, food booths sponsored by local organizations were also present. Many festival-goers went out to the fairground to support Wesley Heights Methodist Church, American Legion, Coffee County Rescue Squad, Grace Baptist Church and more other local groups.
