July Second Is Deadline For Kentucky State Fair Entries

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - If you're one of those people who has been thinking about entering something in the Kentucky State Fair, it`s time to get moving.

The deadline for fair entries is July second.

Entry fees are eight dollars per department for adults, four dollars for teens who turn 18 after August first and free for anyone who is 55 by August first. State Fair Board spokeswoman Amanda Storment says about four-thousand entries have been turned in so far. She says the fair typically receives about 40-thousand entries.
