|I love seeing each project and enjoy asking how they acquired them, their names|
etc. It is delightful to see the kids light up when they talk about their projects.
At the end of the week when all the shows are complete and before the awards show there are "Games on the Grass". Three legged races, watermelon seed spitting, a water balloon toss & even Betsy Bingo which includes a grid on the lawn and a cow. . . . .
I think the true reward of fair is watching young adults help each other even when they are competing against each other. A personal story ~ a girl who made it to a Round Robin show. She was a sheep showman but for this competition would be required to also show a pig, goat, beef, and someone else's sheep. Really quite an honor to be in this competition. The problem, she is deathly afraid of the 1,400+ lb beef. Teary eyed I watched kids she would be competing against comfort her and offer animals to practice with.
So that's it!! My country roots summed up in a post about the county fair!! I would love to hear about events near & dear to your heart that bring community together. Feel free to share in the comments or at "HI!" Noteson Facebook! You're welcome to post pictures there too!!
