2014 County Fair

Come one. Come all to a great family event. The community of Heflin is preparing for its second annual county fair. It will be a fun-filled days’ worth of good-old fashioned activities that will give your family the opportunity to close out your summer with one last hoorah! The 2014 County Fair is tomorrow at Ross Mountain Adventures. Cleburne County Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Tanya Maloney says the fair was inspired by the city of Heflin elders. There will be a canned food exhibit and contest sponsored by Bennett Farms. The canning contest will include 6 categories. Judges will select from canned pickles, jams, jellies, tomatoes, vegetables, and relishes. It’s $1.00 per canned item for entry, and if you’re selected as the best, you’ll be given a prize. But, you must adhere to canning contest rules. Cleburne County 4-H will present a chick chain show sponsored by L E Bell where local youth will show-off their birds. 4-H Regional Extension Agent Jennie Hargrove says they have plenty of kids for the show. The fair will also host an open sheep show with 100 lambs that starts at 2:00PM. Fair attendees can also take a chance on a golf ball drop where you could win $3000. The 2014 County Fair is sponsored by Buster Miles, Metro Bank, Taylor Corporation and the Cleburne County Chamber of Commerce. The gates open at 12 noon and close at sundown at 8:00PM when the Bullanza Rodeo begins.
