HARRODSBURG - Fair-goers here will notice some improvements to the fairgrounds of the Mercer County Fair and Horse Show when it opens Monday.
Dr. LeMayne Ellis, president of the fair board, said the old fairgrounds have been given a bit of a facelift with repainting, paving and a new horse show office.
Entering the office, one gets a sense of the old along with the new because the old cabinetry is being used in the new office and the office is in the same place as the old one. People who work in the office, however, notice a big difference. For one, they now have their own bathroom and central air conditioning.
A week before the fair, work is being done to make improvements. Fair goers and residents driving down Linden Avenue will notice a new sign that was still being worked on Tuesday.
