CULLMAN, Ala. – It’s that time of year again. The temperature is starting to drop, the leaves have begun to change, and the Cullman County Fair is back in town. Members of the Cullman Lions Club were joined by other Cullman officials at the fairgrounds Thursday afternoon to officially open the gates for the 67th annual Cullman County Fair.

Things got started when Morgan Haynes sang the national anthem as the flags were raised behind her and Lions Club member Charlie Childers followed her up to the microphone to say a prayer and share a few words about this year’s event. Childers also introduced Cullman businessman Roy Drinkard who was in attendance to cut the ribbon on this year’s county fair.

“67th year, this is awesome. I believe its 67 years that we’ve been doing this and this year we have got great participation in pictures, art, cows and I think we even had a lamb on the loose a little while ago,” Childers joked. “So, I hope its going to be an exciting week for everything that comes along. I know people are ready to come in and we’re ready to get going. Today we are honored to have Mr. Roy Drinkard, a WWII Marine veteran, here to open up our fair and cut the ribbon.”

The gates of the 67th annual Cullman County Fair are now officially open, and the fair will remain open until Saturday, Oct. 16.
