Atchison CT Fair

The Atchison County Fair will still begin today.

Earlier reports made many people fear it would be postponed due to the recent flooding of the Missouri River. The fair grounds, located in Rockport, are above the flood plain and are free from any flood water. National resource engineer and county program director for the University of Missouri Extension Jim Crawford says, the only problem would be people accessing the fairgrounds from the west. He adds those who do make it, can enjoy a full weekend of activities.
