Holiday madness hits the NEA District Fairgrounds

JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) - The Northeast Arkansas District Fairgrounds is exploding with holiday madness. The fifth annual Mistletoe Madness begins Friday.

Thursday, volunteers prepared for the many vendors participating in this year's event.

Chairman Jessica Dillon says proceeds earned from the event will go to help others.

"This allows us to put on programs in the community. Especially the Diabetic Awareness Conference, which is both for men and women, and the Women's Health Conference. These conferences allow individuals to come and get vital screenings that they may not be able to get anywhere else," Dillon says.

Ninety six vendors are participating in this year's Mistletoe Madness.

The doors open Friday night at six.
