Rockdale Fair, good shopping make for perfect time this weekend

Hello, Rockdale. What an exciting week we have ahead of us. The weather is cooling down and I don’t known about all of you but it puts me in the mood for some good ole fashioned fair activities. I am ready to ride some rides, watch some rodeo events, eat some good BBQ and enjoy some good country music.

Where can you get all of those things.....Well, the 36th annual old fashioned Rockdale Fair & Rodeo would be a great place to start. You can get all of that and much, much more. Hope to see you out there this weekend.

I want to congratulate our new Miss Rockdale Fair Queen, Morgan Fischer. You can see her and all of the pageant winners and court at the Fair Parade at 10 a.m. on Saturday morning.

While you’re out, you should stop and visit some of our local shops to get a real feel for Rockdale’s flair! Some of our shops include:
