Agrilife: Arts and Crafts Show Highlights Fall Festival

Creative Arts Contest Results

The 2016 Hopkins County Fall Festival has come and gone until next year, and we could not have asked for better weather!  Sun shine and a gentle breeze greeted fair-goers.  Two of the highlights each year are the Arts & Crafts Show (by the way, I purchased some absolutely fabulous items handcrafted items!), and the Creative Arts Contest.  Hopkins County residents showcased their talents in the Creative Arts Contest, and many people visited the exhibit during public viewing times.
