Annual fair brings thrills and squeals to Jones County

HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) -

The South Mississippi Fair brought many thrills and squeals to residents in Jones County this weekend.

Live acts, concerts, and shows are just some of the exciting events that have been taking place this year at the fair.

"This is an annual event that for 96 years, there were three years it didn't happen due to the war and Hurricane Katrina, but every year in the month of October Jones County and the surrounding Pine Belt is just excited to have the South Mississippi Fair," said Executive Director of the South Mississippi Fair Commission Pam Holified.

Sunday's special event included a miniature horse show that took place at the Magnolia Center, a good time for all the kiddies.  

There was also the Sea Lion Splash on the midway concert stage, Scott's Crazy Comedy Magic Show, and if live entertainment wasn't your cup of tea, yummy fair food like funnel cakes and candy apples was also on the table.

The South Mississippi Fair will be going on until October 27. General admission is $5 and parking is free.
