Volunteers are getting ready to put together the pieces of the South Texas State Fair.
The fair begins Thursday, March 26 and runs through April 5 at Ford Park.
The YMBL board voted to move the fair to March after Hurricane Ike prevented the event from taking place in its usual time period in October
Truck drivers are bringing in some of the rides for the Bill Hames Midway and organizers expect hundreds of thousands of visitors.
YMBL Fair Chairman Donnie Warner tells KFDM News volunteers will be busy this week. Vendors begin checking in Sunday and volunteers will work throughout the day to prepare the fairgrounds.
