Fall Festival board busy preparing for ‘Your County Fair’

E-mail Print PDF

Time is really creeping up fast for the 40th Annual Fall Festival. A lot of the events are confirmed, with some still in the planning stages. One deadline coming up pretty quick is the 40th Anniversary Hopkins County Fall Festival Cookbook. Cindy Smithers, who is chairperson of this event, is asking that all submissions be in her hands no later than May 15. This will give her time to organize the recipes into the various sections and get it to print so it can be available prior to the opening day of the Festival. You may contact Cindy at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it or mail recipes to P.O. Box 177, Sulphur Springs, TX 75483. You may also call her if you need more information at 903-885-8036.

We want to include recipes from everyone who has been a part of Fall Festival over the past 40 years. Cindy is doing a great job of coordinating this effort and I encourage you to get your recipes in to her in time to be included in this 40th Anniversary Edition.

Also, we want to remind young ladies who will be going into their junior year in high school this fall to consider entering the Cover Girl Contest. This is not a beauty contest nor a talent contest, but rather a contest of timed skills. It is really a lot of fun for the girls and many of the girls have formed long friendships through this fun experience. Contact Tracy Dennis at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.

You may also go to the Fall Festival web site for an online application at www.hopkinscountyfallfestival.com. Select the tab “Cover Girl,” which also has a copy of the events you will participate in along with the point system for each event. It will be an experience you will cherish for many years.

Another reminder is about the last Saturday night of the Fall Festival and the musical event that will be taking place. As we talked about previously, we are giving an opportunity for non-profit groups of Hopkins County to sell tickets to the concert and raise funds for their organization.

If you need more information you may contact Ina Gore at 903-885-4262, Cheyenne Smithers 903-438-1605 or Susan Neal at 903-945-2722.

We will be happy to supply you with tools you need to participate in this event.

The next board planning meeting will be held on May 11 at 5:30 p.m. in the Civic Center board room.

If you are interested in being a volunteer for Fall Festival, we invite you to attend. Meetings are held on the second Monday of each month.

Until next month, keep on supporting “Your County Fair….”
