The Perry County fair is set to open July 16th....and this year there will be some improvements. The fair will have a new 30-thousand square foot show arena that will house various activities for 4-H kids and the community. The old infrastacture had to be replaced becasue it suffered too many non-repairable projects. The old facility has been demolished and the new building is well on its way to being finished. Fair board president Frank Newlon says the project should be completed by the opening of the fair. He added that the new structure was funded through the participation of four local banks, and the income of the fair will help pay for total costs.
