Morgan County Fair opens Thursday
Ready for 10 days of the ferris wheel, funnel cake, livestock, live music, games and more? The annual Morgan County Fair opens Thursday and continues through Sept. 29.
This week you can enter your canned goods, baked goods, honey, field crops, plants, sewing, artwork and crafts.
Entries can be taken to the exhibits building at the fairgrounds on Modaus Road behind Home Depot on Sunday between 1 and 5 p.m. or on Tuesday between 4 and 7 p.m. (baked goods must be taken Tuesday).
