Original story: Despite the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, the Panhandle South Plains Fair will indeed happen this fall.

According to the fair's website, this year's event will happen September 25th through October 3rd, 2020. The usual run of attractions are currently on the agenda for this year's fair, with a daily children's petting zoo, dozens of fair food stands, art and agricultural exhibits and shopping.

In addition, the long-running coliseum shows inside the Fair Park Coliseum are also confirmed to return.
