The origins of another small units like the Biscuit Stand, FFA Horse Raffle and other booths dates back to the year 1973. There are many small booth of food and crafts selling shops in the premises as well. Eventually after some years, the members of the Louisiana Draft Horse Association dissolved and the Brunette family took over the event and the farm.
