Gregg County Fair changes

GREGG COUNTY, TX (KSLA) – The Gregg County fair that draws in thousands to east Texas has a few changes from previous years.

Workers are already assembling rides for the 61st annual fair. This year's fair will be open for 8 days rather than the traditional 5.

The revised format is because of the weather and how it has canceled days in the past, causing lost revenue.

This time around organizers want to make sure there are more rides, more attractions, and more chances for visitors to attend.
