DU QUOIN -- Monday is the final day to get out and enjoy the food, rides and entertainment at the Du Quoin State Fair. 

Hundreds came out Monday afternoon to celebrate "Family Day" at the fair, and see the big races at the Grand Stand.

"I've been taking notes of things I see on the grounds, entertainment we may want to offer. Little things behind the scenes, things we may need to change. Areas that we need to add more to or just overall logistics," said Tibretta Reiman, Assistand DuQuoin State Fair Manager. 

To wrap up the fair, there's a steer show, barrell racing, free entertainment and bands in the beer tent. 

Fair activivites wrap up Monday night aruond 11:30 p.m.
