(MENA) Activities are getting ready to commence soon at the Polk County Fairgrounds in Mena.
The 66th Annual Polk County Rodeo is slated to commence with various events over a three day period, beginning on August 8th. Most events will take place in the evening, however, there are events going on during the day as well.
Then, the Polk County Fair will get underway on August 26th and continue through September 1st.
Fair goers will notice noticeable improvements on the roadways leading to the venue, as the state has resurfaced US Highway 71 South from the Country Express convenience store to just South of the city.
But as you turn onto Fairgrounds Road, the City of Mena and Polk County officials have repaired and resurfaced that roadway, making it more easier to travel.
