POINSETT COUNTY, Ark. (KAIT) - The county fair officially began Wednesday in Poinsett County.

The stage is set with rides, livestock, lots of food, live music performances, and fun for people around the county.

Fair Treasurer Haley Beth Skelton said county fairs are essential for agriculture education and each year in Poinsett County the fair grows.

“County fairs are so important for agriculture education and for kids so we are trying to build the legacy and we are making strides to do that. We are really excited we have a lot going on this week to accomplish this goal,” Skelton said.

The fair opens at 5 p.m. every night and the carnival starts at 6 p.m. On Friday, they will host the Harrisburg homecoming after-party after the football game.
