LUMBERTON — The sweet smell of cotton candy beckons fairgoers to the Robeson Regional Agricultural Fair year after year.
This year, there is a chance to get a sneak sniff with the just-released fair premium book.
The 68-page book recognizes the major sponsors of the Robeson Regional Agricultural Fair, provides a complete daily schedule, outlines the rules and regulations for all contests, and provides detailed information about how to enter animals in the livestock shows and items in the home exhibit.
This year, the smell of cotton candy is evident if a person scratches the front cover and takes a whiff.
The book is available for free at the O.P. Owens Agriculture Center and the Robeson County Fairgrounds, where the annual fair will be held from Sept. 28 to Oct. 6.
During that 10-day run, more than $24,000 in prize money will be awarded for home exhibits, livestock shows and other contests.
