Written by 

out itsagoatThe Haywood County Fair will feature a newly expanded zoo this year.

 

The zoo will occupy space in the Burley Livestock Barn and in the Waynesville Lions Club Horse Barn at the fairgrounds. The zoo will feature the usual farm animals, as well as exotic animals, from 6 p.m. Wednesday, Aug. 21, through 5 p.m. Sunday, Aug. 25.

A special feature at this year’s Haywood County Fair will be a draft horse and mule pulling contest at 12:30 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 24, in the Great Smokies Arena at the Haywood County Fairgrounds.

Teams may enter one of four classes — light horses, light mules, heavy horses and heavy mules. Horse and mule teams will attempt to pull a dead sled with 500-pound weights added after each successful pull. Also featured at this event will be a parade of horse- or mule-drawn equipment.
