Mid-South Fair Moving to Tunica

The Mid-South Fair is on the move.

The fair has been held in Memphis for more than 150 years.

But after this year, it's packing up and moving to Tunica, Mississippi.

Plans for the Tunica opening are right on schedule.

But fair officials worry they won't have everything in order before their lease in Memphis expires December 31st.

Mid-South Fair President Jim Rout says, "if we were able to stay until May or June  that would probably give us enough time to get a warehouse built, and and set up down there."

It's not clear if the city of Memphis will be able to accommodate the Mid-South Fair on its request to stay several months longer.
