Mayor Becky Haas Shares the Joy of The Fort Bend County Fair

This morning’s Fort Bend County Fair parade was so much fun as I joined all the other County Mayors to kick off the parade as this year’s Grand Marshalls! It felt like there were even more people along the parade route this year waving with excitement and enjoying the more than 200 floats, bands and drill teams and variety of participants. As I have said before, I have loved the Fort Bend County Fair all my life! We are so fortunate to have one of the premier county fairs in the State, so whether you are new to the area or have been here all 86 years since the beginning of the Fort Bend County Fair, I hope you make some time to visit the Fair which supports our youth with scholarships and education through agriculture. Enjoy this weekend Richmond.
