Head over to the fair for some family fun

Jayden Roe enjoys one of the rides Oct. 12 at the Walton County Fair. The fair runs through Oct. 17.

Sticking to its roots as an agricultural fair, there will be livestock competitions every day including rabbit, poultry, hog, horse, lamb, goat and cattle shows.

The Fair also provides an opportunity for youth and adults to showcase their artwork, handicrafts, growing crops. Other activities will include a dog show, hot dog and pie eating contests, baked goods for sale and live music. Food vendors along the midway with rides will provide hours of entertainment for the entire family.

Cost: Adults $3, children (6-12) $2, 5 and under free.

Armbands for rides are $12 Tues. and Thurs. $15, Mon., Wed., Fri., and Sat. On Saturday, armbands are good from 10 a.m until 5 p.m.  Then a new one must be purchased for the 6 p.m. until closing time. The rides will be closed from 5-6 p.m. on Saturday for a state required inspection.

The fair is located at the Walton County Fairgrounds on Hwy. 83 one mile north of Hwy. 90 (790 North 9th Street) in DeFuniak Springs. ::MAP::
