Fall has arrived and so has the festivities that comes along with it.
This week, thousands of people have made their way to the Lee County Fair to join in on the fun.
People of all ages were in attendance. The Eddy brothers were particularly excited for the event Friday night, as Peyton Eddy, a student at Auburn Junior High School, said that he was “most pumped for all of the rides.”
Older brother Brandon Eddy, a student at Southern Union experienced the fair the night before as well, and said that his favorite part of the fair “is the rides – especially the ones with music.”
Alanna Lucier, senior in industrial engineering at Auburn University, made her way to the fair grounds Friday night.
“Overall it is really cute,” Lucier said. “It is the perfect sized fair to me, especially because the one I have back at home is way too big.”
“There is a lot of different rides, good food and even a goat contest.”
Her favorite part was the goat contest, she said, because she had “never heard or seen of that before.”
Lucier and her friends were able to pet the goats too, which she said made it more fun for her.
For a lot of students, it was a welcome break from the hectic game day weekend atmosphere of a college campus.
The size was a plus for many attendees, being not as crowded as a large state fair, but still having an exciting vibe with an intimate atmosphere.
“The atmosphere of a small fair is so much fun,” said Kathryn Grace Faulk, sophomore in human development and family studies at Auburn.
