SOUTHAVEN, MS (WMC-TV) - The Mid South Fair is in full effect and running smoothly at its new home in DeSoto County.

Wednesday, organizers said they were very pleased with the results.

One of the main concerns coming into this year's event was the traffic and parking situation.  But organizers say so far, that has not been a problem at all.

The Fair's Chuck Roberts said attendance has also been good..  

"Attendance is very much in line with what we anticipated," Roberts said. "Through the days we've been here so far, we've had somewhere in the range of 75,000 people, and that's just a phenomenal crowd."

Roberts added since things are going so well, they have added an another ride for fairgoers to enjoy.

The fair runs through Sunday.
