Small town USA expands from 200 people to several thousand on the fall weekend each year during the locally known "World’s Fair."
The “World’s Fair offers something for everyone! Beginning on Thursday, anyone can enter a food product in open class judging, an amazing quilt design, a photo taken during the past year or even garden produce. Everyone enjoys a hamburger and fries from the Lion's Club concession stand while visiting with friends (new or old) at the picnic tables on the fair grounds. Wrap of Thursday evening by watching the children's games, entertainment; and don’t forget to take part in selecting the Fair Queen.
On Friday fair-goers can view the judging of entries, visit with friends, or in the evening be a part of the famous Mary Jane Holloway Pie Baking Contest, followed by BINGO in the city hall. Don’t forget to enjoy another great Lion’s Club hamburger!
Saturday is a jam packed day, starting with a 5k race first thing in the morning, with tons of unique activities all day long. Take a ride on one of the carnival rides (Toby's Amusements), view the parade (over 1 hour long!) of course, after you’ve enjoyed an outstanding lunch meal at the Kincaid-Selma Methodist Church.
Don’t rush off after the parade, continue to visit with friends, and join in the fun of the kids AND adult games on Main Street. Before you leave, be certain to take a walk “through the past” and check out all the antique tractors. Shop in the old City Hall building filled with arts & crafts on Saturday, or walk a few blocks to the north end of Main Street and reminisce while touring the reclaimed Kincaid High School building (for some it was the Junior High building).
Once again before you wrap of your fair going experience, be sure to enjoy one more (or ten) Lion’s Club hamburgers, because it will be 12 months before you get enjoy another!
