Preps for 54th Gregg County Fair

It's that time of year again when the carneys and rides return to Longview's fairgrounds for the annual county fair. Final preparations are being put on the fairgrounds for the 54th annual Gregg county fair.

More rides, more food, and more fun and games are on tap for this years event. As usual there's lots for the kids to enjoy, like the popular petting zoo.  Plus the fair will boast it's largest midway in history.  Organizers hope it will bring in the crowds.

The 54th Gregg county fair runs from September 9th through the 13th. Admission is $3 and children under 6 are free.  It all gets started Tuesday from 6 pm to midnight.
