[LIVINGSTON]- The Livingston Parish’s 79th annual fair was canceled due to recent flooding damages in the community.
Lynn Sibley, president of the Livingston Parish Fair Association, said “the conditions are devastating –yes—but it is not our homes or personal businesses. We will recover.”
Due to the facilities being submerged in five foot water, the fairgrounds are now used as a demolition location for thousands of flooded vehicles.
The reigning 78th Miss Livingston Parish Fair Queen, Mackenzie Johnson, said there are no decisions made in regards to her reign ending on October 8th, or continuing to represent the fair for another year. She would be honored to do it again. “I would not leave our parish out of balance without someone who supports and represents them all year,” Johnson said.
