JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) -

The Northeast Arkansas District Fairgrounds are officially for sale.

Three properties associated with the fair are being listed by Collier International, a worldwide company that has offices in Little Rock.

The largest piece of land being sold is the roughly 80 acres that the fairgrounds and exposition center currently sit on.

Michael Cureton with the fair board said the sale follows the liquidation plan of last year’s bankruptcy declaration by the board.

The other two properties are at the old fairgrounds site.

One is 3.1 acres on Fair Park Boulevard, just across from Lowe’s.

The other is a 12-acre plot on Fair Park across from Kohl’s.

Cureton said all three properties are listed separately.
