Posted: Updated:

The start of fall brings back on of Walton County's oldest traditions.

The Walton County Fair kicks off Monday in Defuniak Springs.

Ask anyone with the fair and they'll tell you it's a throw back to a simpler time.

It's one of the oldest in the state. This years them is "enjoy our lights every night."

In addition to nightly entertainment, rides including a Ferris wheel and, of course, the food and baked goods, this year features a new exhibit about milking cows, relating the surrounding farm life to all who visit.

It's this celebration of agriculture that fair manager, Randall Infinger, believes keeps folks coming back.

"We've been very lucky, we've grown every year. We run around, I'd say, 10 to 12 thousand people in a week's time. We got a good fair, we love our fair, and I think if you come here, you'll love it too," he said.

The fair runs Monday through Friday from 5pm to 9pm and Saturday from noon to 9pm.

Tickets are just $3 dollars for adults, $2 dollars for kids ages 6-12, and kids 5 and under get in free.
