If you missed going to the Mississippi State Fair this year, you’ll get another unexpected chance this coming weekend.
Due to Hurricane Delta washing out the fair’s first weekend, Agriculture and Commerce Commissioner Andy Gipson announced Monday morning that the fair will be extended one more weekend from Thursday, Oct. 22, through Sunday, Oct. 25.
Thanks to everyone who came and enjoyed our socially distant, very clean family-friendly outdoor Fair. As Hurricane Delta washed out the first weekend, we are deciding to open back up for one more outdoor Fair Weather weekend this Thursday through Sunday for you to enjoy. pic.twitter.com/fPGbpUBG26
