Some closing doors for the fair

The carnival’s in town and workers with Moore’s Greater Shows were busy over the weekend at the Gillespie County Fair Grounds cleaning, servicing and putting up the various rides for the 126th Gillespie County Fair which runs Thursday through Sunday. Working on the “Hurricane” are Jose Gomez and Felipe Reyes. Sponsored by the Gillespie County Fair and Festivals Association, the four-day exposition offers events for the entire family. — Standard-Radio Post/Yvonne Hartmann
