Transportation Help and the Famous Porkette – Fantastic Fair Finds from The Morning Thing (7/29/15)

All week, we have been sharing Fantastic Finds at the Knox County Fair.

Today, we shared some information about transportation.
Many local residents struggle with the challenge to find a parking space once they get to the Fair. Knox Area Transit is helping you by providing shuttle service back and forth to the fairgrounds. Click here to hear Marcy Rinehart share the details of how you can catch a ride to the Fair.
