The Texas County Fair Board will host its fifth annual dinner and auction at 5:30 p.m. Saturday in the livestock showing arena at the Houston Area Chamber of Commerce Fairgrounds.
Proceeds go toward upgrades and improvements to the fairgrounds’ livestock facilities. This year a new animal scale and roof were added, and improvements were made to the new fair board staff office building.
A gun raffle for a Panther AR-10 is occurring, and the gun will be presented at the banquet. Tickets are $5 each or five for $20.
Prices for the dinner will be $10 for people ages 13 and up and $5 for kids 6-12. Children 5-and-under can eat free.
