MONROE, La. (AP) - For the past 38 years, the Ark-La-Miss Fair has been a sure sign that fall is near.

It’s no different Thursday when the 39th annual fair opens at 5 p.m. on the grounds of the Monroe Civic Center.

Sponsored by the West Monroe Civitan Club, proceeds go to the club’s community projects.

The News-Star reports (https://tnsne.ws/1uIjlp0 ) in addition to the rides and carnival games by Belle City Amusements, the fair has agricultural displays, livestock shows, baked goods, arts and crafts, jellies, jams, preserves, sewing projects and quilts which will be judged and on exhibit inside the civic center conference hall.

There’s also music each night, beginning Friday. Talent includes Hands On, Matthew Davidson Band, The McClanahan Family, Blues Man Robert and Cadillac Kings.

The fair runs through Sept. 28.
