Taylor County Fairgrounds home for winter soccer

PRUNTYTOWN—If you see cars headed into the Taylor County fairgrounds this winter, don’t think they are going there for the funnel cakes or the candy apples. They are there for indoor soccer practice or games. The Taylor County Fair Association has created an opportunity for our sports community to use some of the facility for indoor winter practices. The Fair Board has transformed the “livestock” barn into an 80-yard field with artificial turf.
