The Sullivan County Fair is set to get underway in Milan. The majority of the events begin Wednesday and run through July 9th. Tonight’s Fair Queen Pageant kicks this year’s festivities off at 7 at the Milan Community Center. Fair Board Secretary Stephanie Oaks explains why the pageant is held ahead of time.
Activities resume Monday with a fashion review and FFA exhibit judging at the community center. A series of livestock shows begin Wednesday morning at the Sullivan County Expo and Fairgrounds in Milan. Oaks says the fair is beneficial for youngsters in 4-H and FFA.
With a wide-range of livestock being shown at the fair, preparations have been made for the different animals.
Concessions will be available on the grounds with proceeds going towards the Sullivan County 4-H and Sullivan County Fair.
