Residents of Artesia & Carlsbad are showing their support of the Eddy County Fair by collecting signatures of community members. The Fair Board will be meeting this week to discuss their plan to safely and responsibly carry out the event amid the current health restrictions due to COVID 19. If you would like to show your support you can stop by Henry’s BBQ at 811 Main St. in Artesia to sign the petition. The fair is currently scheduled for July 20-25th. Please see the note below on how you can get involved.
