POINT PLEASANT — The Mason County Fair began Monday with events like the Little Mister and Little Miss contest, Mason County Fair Queen Pageant and market hog show.

The fair unofficially got under way Saturday with the annual fair parade which had participants from across Mason County converging in downtown Point Pleasant.

Due to press times, results and photos from fair events held on Monday and Tuesday will not appear until Wednesday’s print edition of the Point Pleasant Register. In addition, this year, the Point Pleasant Register will be expanding the daily newspapers Wednesday-Saturday this week to include special “fair wraps.” These will be four additional pages of the newspaper dedicated exclusively to fair coverage. The rest of the daily newspaper and other daily features will appear inside and will include a traditional “front page” as well as the obituaries, sports, etc.

In addition, those who wish to get their fair coverage and results as they become available can like the Point Pleasant Register’s Facebook page or go to www.mydailyregister.com. Results and photos will be posted as soon as possible.
