HaliFair Heats Up

Billed as “The” event of the summer, Saturday’s HaliFair attracted approximately 500 to Halifax County Fairgrounds, according to Fair Coordinator Donnel Corelle.

The benefit festival for the 100th anniversary of the Halifax County Fair got under way at noon and continued to 10 p.m.

Special attractions included a Race Teams Expo featuring drivers and cars from the South Boston Speedway, cruise-ins of fire trucks, classic cars and motorcycles, skydivers at sunset, and 10 hours of continuous live music by six bands.

All admission monies and proceeds from the event will benefit the Halifax County Fair 100th anniversary.
