I told you that the first annual County Fair was going to be amazing. Yes, I told you so and it was. There were a few doubts about what Mother Nature had in store for the event, but all was well. It was a COOL day in more ways than one. Vendors spanned as far as the eye could see and offered everything from barbeque to grilled cheese donuts (you read it right)! The activities were just as varied. Dunking tank, giant slide, greased pig, “pie the pastor” and many more were among the many fun activities offered. Unique crafts were on display and on sale to suit every taste. Fair attendees enjoyed the music from local talent as well as nationally know musicians. Highlights of the day were the performances of the Ranburne Bulldog Band and the Cleburne County Tiger Band. Their brilliant sound combined with the cool weather made us all ready for some football! A big salute to the Chamber of Commerce, the City of Heflin and all those who worked so hard to see this event come to life! I’m already looking forward to next year!
