Limestone County Fair A Family Experience For All
Social Media Specialist
Athens-Limestone County Tourism Assn
The Limestone County Sheriff's Arena on Alabama Highway 99 in Athens Alabama is the home of this week's Limestone County Fair from August 23rd to 27th. Promoter Keith Hamby of Event EZ has returned with hopes of restoring the nostalgia and charm of the county fair to the Limestone community.
Hamby turns first to the community for entertainment options and vendors. The 2016 engagement of the Limestone County Fair features Tennessee Valley Petting Zoo, Limestone County 4-H and local favorite musical act The Flashbacks as well as familiar faces of arts and crafts vendors market too. The Athens Optimist Club are assisting the organizer in parking so the family won't waste time cruising for a parking spot when they could be having fun at the fair.
Keith Hamby isn't new to the fair or event arena. He started in Blount County trying to restore the tradition of the country fair. He encountered difficulties with non-reliable ride providers until he had the opportunity to meet the Kissels. Their partnership now brings the county fair experience all over the Southeast and Ohio Valley.
The rides for the Limestone County Fair are provided by industry veterans Kissel Entertainment.
