Mississippi State Fair whirls into Jackson

The Associated Press

JACKSON, Miss. -- The 153rd Mississippi State Fair begins its two-week season this week. Executive director Billy Orr says organizers try to add something new every year.
He tells The Clarion-Ledger ( http://on.thec-l.com/SPTKt2) that this year, it's a new roller coaster.
The Mississippi State Fair gates open at 5 p.m. Wednesday. Its Last Blast will be Oct. 14.
Orr says last year, a record 694,000 fairgoers hit the midway. He says a new record this year depends on the weather, and notes that three fairs ago, it rained nine days out of 12.
Entrance and parking are free from 11 a.m.-1 p.m. Monday-Friday.
Country singer Loretta Lynn will perform the evening of Oct. 9, and Chubby Checker on Oct. 10.
