Macon County Fair underway

The Macon County Fair is underway at the Wayne Proffitt Agricultural Center now through Saturday night at 9 p.m. Pets, livestock, chickens, rabbits, barbecue, classic fair food, prize-winning produce, arts and crafts and much more are part of the local county fair tradition. A horse show on Sunday afternoon rounds out the activities. The Macon County Fair is the only purely agricultural fair still in operation in the state.
