Mid-South Fair moves to Tunica County in 2009

The Mid-South Fair will move to Tunica County in 2009, officials said late Monday afternoon.

The fair's Board of Directors came to an agreement on the movie at a meeting Monday.

Fair president Cindy Childress said the fair's location would be right before the intersection of Highway 61 and Kirby Road, north of the casino district.

"It was the decision of the board that this was the best opportunity for the Mid-South Fair to have another one hundred and fifty plus years," she said.

The 2008 Mid-South Fair will remain at its current site at the Mid-South Fairgrounds.
