Throughout the weekend, certain items will not be taxed, including most clothing, shoes and school supplies.  According to the Oklahoma Tax Commission website, “The Oklahoma Legislature passed Senate Bill 861 during the 2007 Legislative Session to benefit both consumers and retailers in the state by providing sales tax exempt shopping.”  Duncan Chamber of Commerce President Chris Deal said the addition of a tax-free weekend to Oklahoma was significant because many people were going to Texas for back-to-school shopping and to take advantage of the Texas Tax-Free Weekend.  “This does help businesses by providing a boost in the economy and the consumer spending by allowing them to save money when shopping for clothing and shoes.

Volunteers are be- ing sought to help take entries in open class from noon to 7 p.m. Aug. 18 and to help with judging from 8:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. Aug. 19.  This year marks the 113th anniversary for the Stephens County Free Fair. This year’s event will feature an open-pedal tractor pull, live- stock shows, exhibits and trade show, gospel music, and a carnival.  Because of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, several traditional events will not take place, including the pie contest.  Although the free fair is set to give FFA and 4-H students an opportunity to showcase their livestock entries, winners will not get a chance to progress to the state level because of the cancellation of the state event.  According to the Oklahoma State Fair website, “Due to the evolving CO- VID-19 health crisis, its impact on community health and well-being, the 2020 Oklahoma State Fair has been canceled. We look forward to brighter days ahead when we can gather again. Until then, stay safe, be well and we look forward to welcoming you back to the Oklahoma State Fair in 2021.”  For information about the Stephens County Free Fair, call the Stephens County Fair & Expo Center at 580-255-3231.
