The Queen City Fair is back in Meridian, for the 17th year.
“We want to see everybody out here. There is something for literally everybody to do,“ says John L. McRae event coordinator.
“It’s a community event. It’s a chance for the community to come together and eat some cotton candy, ride some rides if that’s what they want. Eat a funnel cake. And just spend some time together.”
This years Queen City Fair is all about family, food, fun and festivities. McRae says,
“We try to bring in some new stuff. We have a pig race. A swifty swine pig race this year. That’s gonna be exciting. We have a Muttville comics dog act. And one of the best midways that I have ever seen as far as rides go.”
The McRae family has an embedded history, with bringing the fair to Meridian.
“I was born and radies here. I grew up, going to the fair. Twenty years ago the fair stopped coming to Meridain. My dad saw that people really enjoyed that and doing it. And we live and work in Meridian and wanted Meridian to have a fair. It’s a community event.
The fair gate admission is $7 and the fair goes from today until Sunday October 15th.
