 Weakley County Fair returning next year

After several decades, the Weakley County Fair is coming back next August.

Dresden Alderwoman Sandra Klutts tells Thunderbolt Radio News how she along with Dresden Business Association President Sandra Taylor and others have worked to begin plans for the new Weakley County Fair Association.

The association is having a fundraiser and a little sneak peek of the fair on Saturday, August 7th at the Dresden Industrial Park on Swanson Drive.

A “Farmer for the Day” event will be held that day from 8:00 until 1:00, with helicopter rides beginning at noon, and a rodeo that night at 7:30, plus there’ll be a lot of food.
