After having learned so much about Arkansas from you I know the Arkansas State Fair would be a great one to experience.

October is a great time of year to have a State fair especially in Arkansas.

Thanks for the amazing travel and activities guide.

Well Done!

Thank you! The only SEO I adhere to is "what will people Google?" The Fair Grounds is kind of out of the way, and not right by interstate.It isn't far, but I know Arkansans who don't live here, have a hard time finding stuff. It was rained out last year, and everyone was broke, so...I made a project to help boost the Fair and tourism dollars to our town (again/still), and Arkansans feeling of unity. I have had more hits on this than any other Hub! Susan G. Komen's Race for the Cure is tomorrow morning, so we have out-of-town visitors everywhere. Thank you Ms. Katiem for stopping by and leaving a comment. The Best to You and Yourn!

Thanks for sharing. I too miss State Fair. I went to MN State fair and I like it very much. Those PBR stuff should be interesting, I watch them on TV a lot.
