The Macoupin County Fair is finally here and will be setup all week long at the Macoupin County Fairgrounds just north of Carlinville. The crowd favorite will be taking place at the grandstand tonight to kick off the evening festivities.
At 7 o’clock, the Little Mister and Little Miss Pageant will commence. Gillespie’s own Mr. Kolton Lowry will be retiring his 2012 Little Mister crown to one of the seven lucky contestants vying for the crown. On the female side, 12 beautiful girls are competing to take the 2013 Little Miss crown handed over by Ms. Charlie Harding of Carlinville.
Admission into the grandstand tonight for the pageant is $8 plus $5 a carload to park. Tonight’s theme is The American West consisting of cowboots and cowboy hats. The 2013 royalty crowned tonight will have plenty of prizes coming their way like a trophy, a new bike, a personalized bag, and a personalized car magnet. Other prizes include a gift certificate to DiCarlo’s, a 2 hour rental at the Demuzio Sports Center, a Subway gift certificate and a free photo session by Amy Chism Photography.
