PLEASE NOTE: Currently the Evac. Center is housing individuals displaced by Hurricane Ida. We anticipate that the evac center will be available to us to display Adult, Sr. Citizens, 4-H and Special Schools exhibits. However, if the evac center is in use and not available, we will not have competitive exhibits for the 2021 Rapides Fair.
