Tangipahoa Parish Fair

"The Tangipahoa Parish Fair was originally created in 1888 making it the oldest fair in the State of Louisiana.  It is commonly known as the Tangipahoa Parish Free Fair due to the fact that we do not charge a gate fee to enter the fairgrounds and is always held the first Saturday in October.  The Fair is a perfect place for family and friends to come together for a day full of fun and memories.  It is a family event that has something to offer all ages.  Entertainment varies from live music, carnival rides, pie eating contest, cook-off, 4H exhibits, livestock show, Pioneer Town, Indian/Native American Village, School displays, a womanless pageant and much much more." - tangifair.org
