The American Legion Fair will be held in Covington for the first time starting Oct. 25.

Star Staff Reports
The American Legion Fair Committee Inc. announced the Corporate Sponsors of the American Legion Fair Oct. 25-28 at Cobb-Parr Park in Covington.
 “I was completely surprised by the support,” said Lee Buchschacher, President and Fair Chairman.
“The usual big businesses that traditionally support these events are noticeably absent; but the big surprise was the number of small and entrepreneurial businesses that stepped up to the plate.”
Buchschacher said that not all paid money but gave in-kind services.
For example, the official photographer for the Fair is Lisa Hellman, owner of Images of Heaven Photography in Covington who will be taking news and publicity shots all during the Fair.
Another, in-kind sponsor is ABC 24 television in who produced a television public service spot to air on their two stations in Memphis.
Other listed sponsors are: Angel's Closet and Book Nook; Cannon Chiropractic; Friends of Conneye Albright;
In Home and Office Spa Escapes; Park University – Millington Campus; Promo Print Advertising ; Tipton County Veterans; and US 51 Country Radio.
“The sponsors will enjoy prime visibility at the Fair with their names on banners and hourly announcements from the US 51 Country Stage,” Buchschacher said.
“And all sponsors are offered a booth space with electricity as part of their sponsorship package.” 
The Fair with 29 rides on the midway, opens Thursday with a "Ribbon Cutting Ceremony” at  5 p.m. and continues through Sunday.
This is a charitable event. The net profits go to the American Legion Charities to help veterans, their families and the youth of our community.
 Gates open at 5 p.m. on weekdays and 1 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday. The Fair closes nightly by 11:30 p.m.
