Hold on to your funnel cakes. The metro is finally getting its own fair.
The first annual Pulaski County Fair will be held Sept. 29 - Oct. 3 at Riverfront Park in North Little Rock.
Everything you love about the fair will be there — rides, games, live music, vendors, insane food — all on the banks of the Arkansas River. A portion of the proceeds will go to NLR Parks & Recreation, and organizers also plan to grow the fair and add more local activities each year.
The carnival company Fun Time Shows is behind the fair setup and has more than 30 years of experience throughout the South and Midwest in Arkansas, Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Missouri and Oklahoma.
Carnival hours are 5:30-11 p.m. Wednesday through Friday and noon - 11 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday. Admission is $5 for adults, and kids 12 and younger get in free.
Masks are encouraged at the fair, and there will also be a free COVID-19 vaccination tent onsite.
