Some of my favorite memories of my childhood involve spending time at the county fair. We would eat funnel cakes and corn dogs, watch the Demolition Derby, and ride the ferris wheel. Each year, the Garland County Fair rolls into town just in time for fall to be kicking into gear. Enjoy all the rides and carnival food you can stand this week, from September 12-17, 2016.
Each day of the county fair, you can enjoy carnival food and rides, and the arts and crafts fair. There are games for you to win prizes and lots of rides made especially for children. There are even gospel concerts at 7pm most evenings. Plus, on Friday and Saturday you can also enjoy the Demolition Derby at 7:30pm, a rousing event that involves a tournament-style wrecking of cars until the final round on Saturday night.
The Garland County Fair is the perfect trip for an Arkansas getaway, giving you time to make fun memories and enjoy the lovely fall weather. Tickets for a full day of fun at the fair are $20-25, and you can find out more information about the fair events and schedule on their website.
While you enjoy your getaway in Hot Springs National Park, stay at Lookout Point. You can begin each day with gourmet breakfast and gorgeous views of Lake Hamilton, and it can end with a soak in the whirlpool tub and sleep between luxurious sheets. You can reserve your stay online or call 501.525.6155 for more information. We would love to help you plan your Arkansas vacation!
