It all starts this evening. The 2018 Webster Parish Fair kicks off with the parade this afternoon.
While the food, rides, and games often garner the most attention at the fair, the real excitement involves Webster Parish students.
The livestock show and competition which takes place each night this week, is the culmination of a lot of hard work by students throughout Webster Parish. Many have worked all year for this moment.
We as a community owe it to these kids to show our support with attendance, involvement, and money. Agriculture is still a large industry in our part of the state.
As generations come and go, it is important to pass on the values of hard work, dedication, and satisfaction from a job well done. These kids have illustrated all of those values, and we are excited to see the combination of their efforts this week.
Of course we are all so excited about the food, the rides, and the games. Who wouldn’t be?
So enjoy the fair this week and remember there’s a lot more going on then you see just inside the gate.
