HARRISBURG, AR (KAIT) - Food and fun can be found at the Poinsett County Fair with special entertainment also planned.

Carnival rides open at 5 p.m. Thursday and Friday. Saturday is Family Day with activities beginning at 10 a.m.

While the traditional fair food is available, a special group is set up to raise money for local law enforcement.
