Many changes coming to Pineywoods Fair

Many changes coming to Pineywoods Fair

NACOGDOCHES, TX (KTRE) - The Pineywoods Fair is beginning its 35th year of entertaining East Texans.

Midway fun, animal judging and the many booths are always there.

However, this year loyal fair goers will notice a few changes from parking to where they'll find the vendors.

The ferris wheel remains in its prominent spot, but when you start looking for the vendors head inside to the new Civic Center.

Bobbie Williams is ready to go right now. She is liking her new location, more or less.

"The pros that i like about it is there isn't any dust and there won't be any cold winds blowing in from the outside," Williams said. "Now the, against, probably is i can't see everyone in the room like i could in the arena."

There will be a lot to watch in the main arena from the high school ag displays to cheerleading contest on Wednesday and Saturday.

"For more information on events and tings happening here at the fair you go to," said administrator Anita Scott.

The biggest change will be entrance into the fairgrounds and parking.

"The north driveway will be the exit only, so this middle driveway is where all public parking should come to," said Sheriff Thomas Kerss. "What you see behind me are ticket booths that will be set up in a toll booth style fashion. Once you come into this main driveway we'll divide the traffic. Handicap will be in this lot. Everyone else that's paying to attend the fair will either come and go through these toll booths to make their payment and then they'll be parked or if they're simply dropping off passengers there will be a lane here available."

Just follow the guy in front of you to the ticket booths located right in front of the ferris wheel, always found in its familiar spot.

The Pineywoods Fair runs from Wednesday to Sunday.

Tomorrow night is KTRE Night.

Bring three can goods for a five-dollar discount on "all you can ride" armbands. Without can goods, it will cost you $17.

All collected food will be donated to local food banks.
