The 2014 St. Francis County Fair opened Monday night at the Wiley T. Jones Fairgrounds. Free admission and $1 rides drew a nice crowd, and organizers are hopeful that the start of the pageants tonight will draw even more people to the fairgrounds.

The gates to the fair open at 5 p.m., and tonight’s theme is Security Officers Night. Armbands will be available for $15. The Little Mr., Baby Miss, Wee Miss, Tiny Miss and Little Miss St. Francis County Fair pageants will start at 6 p.m. Photos by Kendall Owens.
