Trenton celebrates 6th annual 1945 Dade County Fair
Monday, the 6th Annual 1945 Dade County Fair was celebrated all day long in Trenton at Jenkins Park.
Dade County natives, The Forester Sisters, opened the fair by singing the national anthem. Other activities included a hot dog eating contest, a car show, and over 80 vendors. Nathan Wooten is the Chairman of the 1945 Dade County Fair. He said the fair was started when he realized there was no July4th Celebration in Dade.
“We started this event six years ago because there was nothing to do in Dade County on the Fourth of July. It’s just it’s grown and grown and we’ve been able to grow through the help of a lot of sponsors. Through a lot of support, we’ve been able to bring some big name performers in here,” said Wooten.
Fireworks will conclude the 4th of July event at 10 p.m.
