What a fabulous weekend we had.
Mother Nature FINALLY gave us a break ! We thank our volunteers, sponsors, exhibitors, entertainers, communities and MOTHER NATURE for their support and enthusiasm. The paperwork isn't completed yet but the overflowing parking lots certainly indicate a huge success !
The fair offered something for everyone: lots of great food, livestock competitions, a variety of wonderful entertainment, singing contest, licensed refreshment area , children's farm Olympics, truck & tractor pull, demo derby, and MUCH MUCH MORE !
