The gates will open at 6 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 18, and continues through Saturday. Ticket prices remain the same as last year with adult admission $5, students ages 6-18 pay $4, and children under 6 are admitted free. Every night is Family Night, and a $15 armband allows the wearer to ride all they want until the gates close.
The fair is held at the Lions Club fairgrounds located on Highway 18 East, about a mile from downtown Gray. The Lions Club has been in existence since 1968 and has been bringing the fair to the community each year for 42 years. The midway is once again provided by Dixieland Carnival Co. Inc.
A big draw for the Lions Club Fair is the safe atmosphere. People travel to Jones County so they can relax and enjoy the local entertainment in a family environment while their children enjoy the rides and games.
