Walton County Fair

By  | 

That also happens to be the theme for this years fair held at the Walton County Fairground in Defuniak Springs.

The annual event helps to promote Walton County agriculture with lots of homegrown plants, food and animals. Also, the fair wouldn't be complete with plenty of rides and games for the younger set.

Attendees should consider themselves lucky. Organizers say this year's fair almost didn't happen.

"Several of the surrounding counties actually had to cancel their fairs due to Ivan and damage they had to their fair buildings and we are extremely fortunate here we had very minimal damage so we're able to get the show up and running."

The fair runs Monday through Saturday with doors opening at 5 p.m. each day. For more information visit www.thewaltoncountyfair.com.
