County Fair Traditions

Welcome to the County Fair

I enjoy the County Fair the place I dwell! It truly is 4 days of a trip for me and one big celebration with lots to see, folks to check out, foods to consume, and a folks watching extravaganza.

The Cass County four-H Fair in Weeping Water Nebraska puts on one of the very best county fairs in the state of Nebraska. It is in fact the only absolutely totally free fair in the state. That means every little thing (except meals) is free, admission is totally free, parking is free of charge, the stage demonstrates are cost-free, the demolition derby is free of charge, the tractor pulls are free, Every thing is cost-free!

Each year there is something a lot more to see, one more occasion I discover to really like and just not enough time to do everything. This year we added the Barbeque People Option contest and the Figure 8 Races at the tractor pit.

I have been attending this county honest for almost twenty many years and I love every day of it from the hog show, the open class creating and the barrel racing. I have seen children expand up at the honest and now I am watching the little ones of children now exhibiting in the livestock classes.

So get a journey to the county fair with me, I’ll present you close to, inform you a tiny about what to count on if you haven’t been before and if you are from the country maybe a journey down memory lane. (All the photos are mine that I have taken above the many years)

I will not enter a lot of objects in the open class division any longer, I just never have the time I utilised to have when I was a stay at house Mom. (I utilized to enter crafts, flowers, herbs, and greens) But I still enter the photography contest every 12 months.

This yr I won Grand Champion photograph, in years pasts I have won lots of purple ribbons for Very best in Class, but it really is been a very long time given that I won Grand Champion. I believe it was when I was nonetheless shooting movie, so it truly is been about 10 years. I significantly was shocked I won with this photo, I won a complete of three purple ribbons for Very best in Class and the judge chooses the Grand Champion from the purple ribbons. Soon after offering it some considered this picture was technically greater than the other individuals with the right exposure, and tack sharp target from corner to corner. It possibly also represented the abstract and patterns class greater than the other entries.

Ever since digital photography has turn into truly well-known the entries in the open class have exploded. They generally have over 300 entries. My daughter won Grand Champion Photography last year with her photograph of the Bow Bridge from Central Park.
