It’s fall once more, and that means it’s time for the Butts County Fair! The Butts County Fair will return again to Jackson, Georgia. The fair will take place at the Butts County Fairgrounds beginning Tuesday, September 27, and end Saturday, October 1. This will be yet another great way for you to spend time with your family and have fun during the fall!
According to their website, the fair will open nightly at 6 PM and gate entry will cost only $4. In addition to a low gate entry fee, there will be a special wristband for students in kindergarten through 12th grade. This wristband will allow students to ride all of the rides at the Butts County Fair!
According to the Jackson Progress-Argus, the fair will host not only carnival rides, but will have games, as well as fair foods, such as “candied apples, boiled peanuts, and corn dogs.” A local Methodist group, River of Life, will operate the food concessions in the fairgrounds clubhouse, and the proceeds will help the community with local housing needs.
The fair is sponsored by the Exchange Club of Jackson. For more information about this local nonprofit, you can attend their meetings, which take place on the first and third Tuesday of each month at the clubhouse on the fairgrounds. Or, you can call Stan Hogan at 770-777-7880.

Did you go to last year’s Henry County Sheriff’s Office Trunk or Treat? If you didn’t, your chance to attend is just around the corner! This year’s Trunk or Treat is happening Saturday, October 29th. It will take place at Heritage Park and at Fairview Recreation Center at 5pm and will end at 6:30pm.
This event provides citizens with a fun Halloween activity. The kids really enjoy it and parents’ minds are set at ease knowing that their children will have a safe night. This is a fun, family-friendly, and FREE event that the kids and citizens of Henry County can enjoy. The event was so popular last year that MULTIPLE candy runs to the store had to be made!
What are your plans for Halloween? If you plan on trick-or-treating elsewhere, remember to keep your eyes open for safety violations. There are sure to be Halloween parties, which unfortunately increases the likelihood of drunk driving and reckless behavior. If you see any red flags, report it.
And of course—check all items and candy that your children receive. When in doubt, throw it out!
I am looking forward to another fun Trunk or Treat, and I expect to see you all there in costume! If you have anymore questions leading up to the event, feel free to ask Sheriff Keith McBrayer on his Facebook page.Read More
