There will be plenty of opportunities for fun together with your family this week as it is time for the 92nd Annual Crawford County Fair. The fair runs this year, Wednesday thru Saturday, July 30 & 31st and August 1st and 2nd.
4-H members have been preparing for weeks now to have projects they have worked on all year ready for exhibiting at the fair. Some pre-fair judging has already taken place this past week and will be displayed this week at the fair.
Additional judging of 4-H projects will take place on Wednesday of the fair and livestock shows will take place each day of the fair. The livestock projects will culminate with the 4-H Livestock sale at 2 p.m. on Saturday afternoon.
4-H families will be making and selling their traditional home-made ice cream during the fair. Be sure to stop by the 4-H building for your choice of chocolate, vanilla, peach or pineapple ice cream.
Even if your family is not involved in 4-H, there are Open Class divisions in which anyone can enter. Open Class entries can be made in Clothing & Textiles, Foods & Food Preservation, Arts & Crafts, Floral, Horticulture, Dairy Cattle & Dairy Goats, Poultry, Rabbits, Beef, Horses, and Sheep. These exhibits will be on display throughout the four days of the fair.
Bring your family out each night for the wide variety of entertainment available. Commercial booths and food vendors will be open each evening along the midway as well as the nightly Carnival attractions. There will also be free live musical entertainment on the midway each evening.
The nightly Grandstand Attractions will include the annual Rodeo on Wednesday and Thursday nights, the 2nd annual Tuff Trucks on Friday night, and the annual Demolition Derby on Saturday night.
