Marion County Fair wraps-up
PALMYRA, Mo. (WGEM) - Saturday marked the last day of the Marion County Fair in Palmyra, Missouri.
The fair has been running since Monday, and Saturday, it went out with a bang.
Hundreds of people flocked to the fair grounds to enjoy fair food and carnival rides one last time, as well as to see the a truck and tractor pull.
For many, attending the annual fair has been a tradition, years in the making.
“Since I was very little, I used to be in the 4--H way back in the day,” said fair attendee Katrina McCain.
The fair is a famous attraction for locals, and runs “rain or shine”, but Friday night’s severe storms and flash flooding put a damper on the festivities.
Luckily, the final day featured much calmer weather, making way for near-perfect fair-attending conditions.
“Beautiful today, couldn’t ask for a better day,” McCain said.
The fair ended at 10 p.m., and will be held next year on the last Saturday in July.
