nce again it is time for the Iron County Fair. Our theme this year is “Country Pride – County Wide.” Within our county, we have wonderful people that exemplify Country Pride. The fair is the time for people to come together and enjoy each other. We have tried to find activities and entertainment that will appeal to all of our citizens. Last year our contests were such a success that we have increased them with fun contests and great prizes donated by many supportive businesses of Iron County. Again this year, we will have local entertainment, fireworks, great arena events, and fun for all ages. I would like to extend a welcome to everyone and hope you will join us in the fun of this year’s Iron County Fair. Joyce Evans, Iron County Fair Manager
