    By Kristie Hamon, Summer intern
    There will be a few new attractions at the fair this year, according to the county extension agent of agriculture and natural resources, Gary Carter.
    The fair will feature a new carnival this year from Kissel Entertainment.
    Carter said they decided to go with the new carnival because they guaranteed 16 rides and because they wanted to maintain the fair price.
    He said most fairs cost $10 to $12 these days where the Harrison County Fair is $8.
    Another addition to the fair will be a dog show.
