The Knob Noster Fair is going on through Saturday, June 13th in Downtown Knob Noster. The carnival has been set up and the vendors are ready for the entertainment. I have many fond memories of the Knob Noster Fair from riding in the cages and the ferris wheel, the Octopus and more recently with my kids by going down the slides. My hometown of Knob Noster looks forward to the fun and entertainment, with the theme "Celebrating Everyday Heroes" this year. I hope you head out and enjoy the fun and if you're heading to Wings Over Whiteman on Saturday, make your way to Downtown Sedalia to continue the family fun. A special welcome back to the Class of 1995 from Knob Noster High School. I Hope the reunion goes well.
