Good day for an Expo
August 13, 2011
Any day in the South in August that is below 90 is a downright cold front.
Today, Day 2 of the Land and Wildlife Expo, temperatures are expected to stay below 90 with little chance of rain. Tomorrow it's more of the same. That translates into more than bearable conditions in the outside 105-acre demonstration area, also called the Outdoor Village. Whatever you call it, it's a fun place to be.
If it does get too hot, the indoor events include seminars, a 113,000-square foot expo space with organizations and companies showing what's new and big events coming up tonight.
At 7 p.m., Dave White, chief of the National Resources Conservation Services, will speak at the Conservation Dinner. Jeff Foxworthy will be there, and Country music artist Craig Morgan will rock the place.
Day passes for the Expo are $20 per adult. Kids under 12 are free with a paying adult.
