Rockingham County, Va. (WHSV) -- The Rockingham County Fair is reaching out to local businesses, interested in having their name advertised at the Rockingham County Fair.
Applications were just sent out and are being collected through October.
Jeff Ishee is the General Manager of the Rockingham County Fair. He said, having your name on a ride or building, showcases local businesses to hundreds of people, many who are from out of town.
Ishee said, this money will go towards updating facilities on grounds. Some changes we will see by this fall. For example, updated WIFI.
Other changes in the works are more bathrooms, more handicapped walkways and better lighting and security.
Ishee said, this program will help support our community.
"All of the funding that comes in to the fair., all of the rides, concessions and so forth all stays right here in the community. When you buy a hamburger or funnel cake, that money stays right here in the community. It doesn't leave the community and go someplace else. It's local," said Ishee.
Several local businesses are already interested in this opportunity, as a way to advertise. They said, in addition to getting their name out to a lot of people, it also helps associate themselves with the fair.
