Then we'll hear about the Carnival of Lights at the Martin County Fairgrounds, it gets underway this weekend. This is the second annual Christmas time spectacular featuring Christmas lighting displays in all kinds of shapes, as well as 'A Castle Christmas', which is a digital light show featuring music and singing trees.

The Carnival of Lights is a fund raiser needed to help pay for the Martin County Fair’s big plans to move from their cramped quarters in Stuart out to Indiantown. Jay Spicer, the Director and Manager of the Martin County Fair joins us to talk about the big plans the Fair has once they raise enough money to move to the new site.
