Memphis born and raised since ‘79, the fair has been a staple of the fall agenda as long as I can remember. Greasy food and spinning rides is a clever combo. Fortunately for our health it is only an annual occurrence. Sadly, there isn’t adequate support for the midway to remain here, and after 151 years it is changing where it calls home. Currently Liberty Land is closed and the Mid-South Fair is in limbo regarding its future home. Top proposed locations are Millington, Marion and as far away as Tunica. So as the fair is taking its last breaths of Memphis air, I try to capture what’s left of the fair that I knew and grew up with.

Wanting a change and missing the local arts community, she is presently trying to segue back into the local industry. She believes the amount of talent in this city is amazing and wants to be a part of it. To learn more about Donnis visit her website, Digital Couture.
