It may be the most popular state fair in America, but Marion County’s fair will be a lot of fun when it gets underway this weekend.
The fair opens Saturday with a special “Free State Fair” event featuring live entertainment, live games, food and a variety of other entertainment.
The event begins at 8 a.m. with a “Free Alabama” sign reading “Free, Free Alabama” and a giant “Treat Yourself to an Alabama” poster.
The sign also includes a message: “You deserve the best.”
“We have to get this right.
It’s a matter of pride for all of us,” said Marion County Executive Steve Stivers.
“We want the people of this community to have the best of everything.”
“The people of Marion County are going to love this state fair,” he said.
The Marion County Fair is a nonprofit organization that runs the state fairgrounds, including the Alabama State Fair, the Alabama Aquarium and the Marion County Museum of Art.
The state fair runs from Labor Day to Memorial Day and has attracted tens of millions of dollars in donations from state and local governments.
The county’s fairgrounds include the Alabama Fairgrounds and the Alabama Museum of Natural History, as well as the Alabama Zoo, the Alabamian State Fairgrounds, the American Historical Museum, the National Zoo and the Museum of Fine Arts.
The Fairgrounds are located just north of downtown Birmingham.
The Alabama Aquaria is the largest marine park in the state.
The Alabaman State Fair is held in Alabama every year, and the Alaskan Zoo is the only zoo in the U.S. with more than 300 animals.
There are two amusement parks in the county, the State of Alabama and the American Museum of the Natural History.
The American Museum is located on the south end of the fairgrounds.
