The DeSoto County Fair, now in its 61st year and scheduled to open on Friday, Jan. 17, is all about the kids. If there was ever any doubt about the primary focus of the fair, one need look no further than the numbers.

"We have 150 kids showing animals this year," said Ray Smith, director of the fair. "There are 70 some kids showing hogs, 23 showing steers and then some showing breeding animals. It's fun for the kids, and keeps them occupied and out of trouble."
