‘A Bountiful Harvest’ of events
The 58th annual Macon County Fair kicked off Wednesday afternoon at the Wayne Proffitt Agricultural Center and will continue until Saturday evening. The theme for this year’s fair is “A Bountiful Harvest,” which residents who have their handiwork on display, have fully adopted.
Being one of the last fairs in existence to focus on the importance of agriculture in the region, the Macon County Fair works in conjunction with local schools who incorporate the fair’s theme into their curriculum. Students from each school in the district are invited to submit artwork and projects that encompass the agricultural theme.
