The 1987 Parish Fair Booklet Photo Album

 Thirty five years ago the St. Tammany Parish Fair Association published its 1987 Fair Booklet, packed with photographs, names, and a long list of activities and events. The fair magazine listed a number of persons who had been honored for their service and dedication over the years, thanking its pageant winners, its livestock exhibitors, and its senior citizens and family living exhibit booth participants. 

Here are some photographs from the book.
