What to know about the South Plains Fair
An annual parade featuring thousands of performers in Sioux Empire Fair Park will resume Sunday after a brief break.
The parade will begin at 10 a.m. and run through the fairgrounds, and the parade will also be streamed live online.
The fairgrounds are a few miles north of the Kansas City suburb of Kansas City, and will be open to the public.
The parade route is the same as last year.
This year’s parade is the first in the series for the fair.
The fairgrounds will be closed during the parade, and it is unclear what will happen with the other events that took place at the fair last year, including the annual rodeo and the rodeo show.
The South Plains fair began in the 1950s as the South Dakota State Fair and has been a fixture in the city for decades.
It began with the Fair City Fair in the 1930s, and has evolved into a yearly parade that draws thousands of people.
The 2018 South Plains is expected to draw about 4 million people.
