  • County Fair opens on Monday

      CLERMONT -  Turning 40 doesn’t mean you’re too old to still have good old fashioned fun.

    He’ll help oversee the 40th annual Bullitt County Fair, scheduled for June 15-20 at the Bullitt County Fairgrounds.

    Anderson said a core group of board members and volunteers have worked together many years to maintain family fun through new events intertwined with the historical features that make people recognize the county fair.

  • Hillview City Fair to have plenty of events

     HILLVIEW - School is out, the weather is getting hotter, the days are getting longer, and the Hillview Government Center parking spaces are limited.

    It’s a sure sign that it’s time for the annual Hillview City Fair presented by the Zoneton Trowel Club. This year’s event will take June 11-13.

    Fair coordinator Harlen Compton said the event was beginning to streamline after six years, with minimal changes from the previous year. The most noticeable change will be the live music.

  • Circle of Peace Gathering

    Large crowds came out to see the customs of the Native Americans. There were vendors with authentic goods and there was food enjoyed by the Native Americans.
