DU QUOIN -- Preparations for the Du Quoin State Fair are well underway.

Vendors are already setting up shop ahead of Friday's kickoff. Dozens of food and beverage stands will line the fairgrounds.
 
Devin Falcon brought his bacon trailer all the way from Connecticut. He says the best part of his job is meeting all the different people.
 
"I heard the people here are really nice, looking forward to that.  Traveling the country, it's different, because every group of people is like night and day different," Falcon said.
 
The annual Twighlight Parade kicks off the fair on Friday, and events run through Labor Day. This is the 92nd year for the Du Quoin State Fair.
