Fish Fry Location in Flux

Paris, TN – The location of Paris Tennessee's World's Biggest Fish Fry is up in the air. The Henry County Fair Association has experienced numerous problems and delays in the construction of a new building on the fairgrounds. Now officials say it won't be completed in time for the April event. Fair Association President Ed Cuthbertson says the fair association tore down the former commercial building last August with plans to immediately construct a 16 thousand square foot structure to replace it. But requirements to install a sprinkler system and additional restrooms delayed construction and upped cost estimates by 100 thousand dollars. Cuthbertson says the fish fry will still be at the fairgrounds, but event organizers are still solidifying plans. He says construction on the new building should start soon and finish up mid-summer.
