Cabarrus fair lights up the evening once again

The Cabarrus County Agricultural Fair closed Saturday after a successful run at the Cabarrus Arena and Events Center. Children enjoyed the petting zoo, while adults as well as younger folks showed the farm animals they had painstakingly prepared for showing. There was also a midway with food and thrill rides, and in the exhibit halls, people showed off their prize-winning handwork and homemade goods.
