Lions plan alternate attractions

Due to the carnival pulling out of the county fair's lineup for this week, organizers have decided on alternative attractions for Wednesday through Saturday night.

The Lions Club hosts the annual Crittenden County Fair which began last Friday and runs through Saturday of this week.

Club members say the carnival promoter failed to show up this week. Therefore, Lions members have decided to offer a number of other opportunities for children and families including multiple inflatables and a mechanical bull at the fairgrounds.

Lions say they are disappointed about the carnival not showing up as scheduled. However, they said the inflatables offer quality entertainment and there will be no additional cost beyond gate entry fee for anyone using them.
