This could be last ride for the Rapides Parish Fair at its longtime location of the Rapides Parish Coliseum fairgrounds.

Rapides Fair Association President Jimbo Thiels tells The Town Talk the group is working diligently to ready the new 25-acre fairgrounds on U.S. Highway 71 South near the state evacuation center close to Louisiana State University at Alexandria.

Thiels says the Rapides Parish Coliseum is too small for an event that’s grown too large.

The Rapides Parish Fair opens officially Wednesday, but several fair exhibits open Tuesday.
