The Taylor County Fair kicks off next Monday for the first time in six years and officials are putting the finishing touches on the newly-constructed fairgrounds.
Crews were getting the booths ready for vendors to come in this weekend.
The rides will be arriving on Sunday as well. Fair officials said the kickoff day will be special for residents.
"Monday is a big day for us. It's a free gate admission on Monday, it's sort of a temporary thing to get everybody in. The carnival will come in on Monday, and we'll set up for rides to begin on Tuesday."
The fair will be held August 11 through 16.
We'll have complete coverage all next week.
