Busy Day And Night At Henry County Fair

Paris, Tenn.—It was a busy day and night at the Henry County Fair Thursday, with the annual Livestock Show, Moon Pie Eating contest, steer, hog, lamb, and goat shows, the Woolies Revue and more. Everyone was relieved that Thursday’s rains cooled things off, especially those who were in the Livestock Barn all day today. In photos, Jonathan Hawbaker of Cottage Grove, won the Moon Pie Eating contest and promptly went to the Livestock Barn to show his steer; Deanna Schoolfield washes off her steer while Mercedes Ellis looks on; and Scott Morrison stands in line to sign up for bidding at the Livestock Show while Laura Moss hands out the bidding cards.
