For the first time in nearly 160 years, Macon County, IL will not be hosting a county fair.
Annual county fairs are usually and automatic thing, something most of us take for granted.
Sometimes budgets get in the way however.
That’s exactly the problem in Macon County. In fact, the fair is so far in the red that they still owe more than $36,000 in prize money to last year’s livestock exhibitors.
All is not lost though, the fair board is still in hope of hosting another fair in 2015.
