The Benton Franklin Fair is gearing up full steam, and if you happened to hang on to tickets purchased last year, they're good this season.

Those include concert tickets (reserved seating) rodeo tickets, carnival wristband passes or rodeo bucks, they're being honored for 2021...provided they were PRE-PURCHASED in advance.

The fair will take place August 24-28. With pledges of the state "re-opening" June 30 or July 1, the Fair is confident it can stage an event like it's used to.

One significant change will be the rodeo, where only reserve seats will be sold.

No doubt the FFA exhibitors will be glad they will be back in the barns, last year their annual livestock sale had to be done virtually, online.
