Between colorful costumes, wild entertainment, the parade, and 4-H and open class competitions, the 2014 Phillips County Fair truly embraced the theme “America’s Best” July 20-27.

The Phillips County Event Center housed local art and food along with 4-H projects on display and quilts lining the south wall. Outside, a wide variety of farm animals were constantly being shuffled around the fairgrounds as different activities were offered in the arena and Homesteaders Park. Additional Fair coverage and photos can be found in this week’s and next week’s Enterprise.
