Big Fair Beir
Fair Hall Flooded With
Farm, Home Products
Of All Kinds
Exposition Will Last
Capacity crowds are expected at
the eleventh annual session of the
Cherokee County Fair in Murphy during
the remainder of its opening.
The big show opened bright and
early Tuesday morning and preparations
were made to entertain
thousands of visitors through Saturday
From every direction came the ex
carrying corn stalks, some with whole
wagons full of supplies, enough, it
seemed, to last three families a lifetime.
On the grounds the merry-goround
went round and round and the
music came out of the calliope.
There was a strong hint of hamburgers
and onions in the air as Chief
Light foot put up the huge aerial
wire, a part of his equipment to he
used when he performs his strong
man act as the main free attraction
of the show.
Many Exhibits Seen
Exhibits in the recently remodelled
Fair house ran way over its former
record of 3000 articles before 10 o'clock
Tuesday morning. Wednesday
a record number of livestock and
poultry had been entered.
Outside of the large number of
regular exhibits that were made,
about 20 booths were set aside for
Three of them were occupied by
general farm exhibits and others
were being used by various organizations
and business enterprises in this
section. The John C. Campbell Folk
School, the cannery, the sewing
room, and many more have their own
interesting exhibits. One attractive
booth was given over to the Great
Smoky Mountains National park.
Music is provided in the fair hall.
Early after displays were made
the judges passed on the many exhibits
in their various divisions but
results could not be obtained for the
paper this week.
Also of special interest was several
stalks of com put on exhibition by
Red Hall. Thev measured 16 feet
in height. Large pumpkins, exquisite
flowers?in fact, just about anything
one could imagine?is on display.
Carnival Full of Gaiety
The Fair has its usual run of concessions
and rides. There's the merry-go-'round,
the ferris wheel, the
hoochy-koochy show, the ministrel
show and the cat alley.
Order will apparently prevail as
three policemen ha\e been assigned
to the grounds.
Tuesday the attendance was light,
but the throng there Wednesday indicated
that the fair official's prediction
sthat the attendance record
would be broke will not run amiss.
From all indications during the
fiist two days of the fair, it can be
expected to be the largest exp ?sition
of its kind ever held in C rokee
So far the Fair has been blessed
with ideal weather and there was no
indication of any rain.
