Across eastern Missouri, the Pike County Fair is known for being one of the best. With five full days of rivetting entertainment and family fun, fairgoers are guaranteed to enjoy themselves no matter which day they attend.
Pike County Fairboard President Vernon Korte takes great pride in the efforts displayed by his Fairboard members year after year, saying the fair is a great way to “build up the community.”
“It’s about the philosophy of the fair,” Korte beamed. “It’s not always about the money.”
The board’s heart is in the right place, striving each year to be better than the year before. With an active Facebook page, just a day after the conclusion of the event, Fairboard members were already requesting feedback from fans, including recommendations for improvements.
