COLUMBUS - The Cherokee County American Legion Fair Board and Columbus Chamber of Commerce will be offering advance sale armbands for the Cherokee County Fair to be held July 25-29. Armbands will be on sale until noon on Tuesday, July 25. By that time, there may not be any left. The Chamber has a limited number of armband tickets for advance sales (we usually sell from 1,500 to 2,000 in a given year). If you wait till the last day, you just might be out of luck.

The public can purchase armbands in advance for Pride of Texas carnival rides for $20 (same as past); they will be more expensive on the midway during fair week. Advance purchased armbands will be good any night of the fair while the carnival is in operation. When they are gone – their gone. The armbands are non-refundable.

Armbands may be purchased at American Bank (Columbus, Baxter Springs, Galena) Commerce Bank, Exchange State Bank, Labette Bank, Evans Drug, Farm Bureau Insurance, City Hall, and the Chamber of Commerce office.
