DU QUOIN, IL (KFVS) - Calling all music fans!

Mayor of Du Quoin, Guy H. Alongi said the fair has a big impact on the region.

"I think its a bigger economical impact for the region than it is for the city because we don't have the motel rooms to hold all the people here. The sales tax for the city of Du Quoin is a big jump but places like Marion and Carbondale get the overflow with the hotels," Mayor Alongi said.
