Officials ponder delaying Mississippi State Fair

Officials ponder delaying Mississippi State Fair - The Clarion-Ledger: "Officials with the Mississippi State Fair are discussing whether to go forward with this year's event, scheduled to open Oct. 5 with a performance by the Charlie Daniels Band.

The fair is scheduled to run at the Fairgrounds, Coliseum, Trade Mart and Livestock Expo Center through Oct. 16.

But because of Hurricane Katrina, the Coliseum has become a shelter for evacuees, and the Trade Mart has been used as a staging area for relief efforts."
