The Keokuk County Fair in What Cheer will be held next month. Keokuk County Fair Board Member Dixie Shipley tells the No Coast Network the Board voted Tuesday night (6/16) to go on with the fair.
“We decided to have our fair July 10, 11 and 12. It may have some modifications, but we will definitely have the fair and harness racing, figure eight races, kids games and most of our usual activities.”
Shipley says it’s important to keep the County Fair alive.
“I just think we need some of these activities to continue. If you don’t continue them and skip a year, then you’re liable to lose your audience. Once you don’t have something, it seems like it’s sometimes hard to get it back.”
Shipley says fair-goers will be encouraged to be cautious with regards to social distancing.
