Cool off: Mississippi State Fair will have ice skating rink
JACKSON, Miss. (AP) — Ice skating will be available this year at the Mississippi State Fair.
State Agriculture Commissioner Andy Gipson says a temporary ice rink will be installed inside the Mississippi Coliseum on the fairgrounds in Jackson.
Gipson announced Friday that a Florida-based company called Magic Ice USA will build and manage the 8,000-square-foot (743-square-meter) rink.
Construction will begin in late September, and the fair runs Oct. 2-14.
The cost of skating will be $10 per person.
Admission to the fair costs $5 for every person older than 6.
