The Neshoba County Fair is July 26 thru August 2.

This is a fun time for many families in and around Neshoba County.

Family gatherings are held, new friends are made and people that you haven't seen since last year's fair suddenly appear.

Many activities will be going on and for many it will be time again to show off the many exhibits that they have made or grown throughout the year at the exhibit hall.

We often hear people say they should have entered a certain item in the fair.

Well now is the time to make plans to enter those exhibits into the 2013 Neshoba County Fair.

The materials that you need to enter exhibits into the fair are available at the Neshoba County Extension office.

The Extension office is located in the Neshoba County Coliseum.

In order to enter exhibits in the fair you must stop by the Extension office and pick up your exhibitor number along with tags and stickers that must be placed on the items that you plan to exhibit.

The deadline to stop by the Extension office and pick up your exhibitor information is noon on Wednesday, July 24.

There are many categories that an individual can enter exhibits and there is no limit to the number of exhibits that an individual can enter.

These categories include: Adult Fresh Fruits and Vegetables, Adult Field Crops, Adult Food Preservation, Adult Arts and Crafts, Youth Posters, Youth Fresh Fruits and Vegetables, Youth Field Crops, Youth Food Preservation, and Youth Food and Nutrition.

Youth between the ages of 8-18 will be exhibiting in the Youth category and anyone over 18 will be entered in the Adult category.

Premium money along with ribbons will be awarded to individuals that enter exhibits in the Neshoba County Fair.

Stop by the Neshoba County Extension office today to pick up your materials to enter exhibits in the exhibit hall at the 2013 Neshoba County Fair.
