2013 Fillmore County Fair Attracts Kids of all Ages

By Barb Jeffers

The Fillmore County Fair provided entertainment for children and kids at heart the week of July 23-27, 2013. Monday got the fair started with a 4-H General Project Day.

Tuesday was a very busy day for 4-H members with Horse Training, Horse Pleasure Show, and Poultry Show. Later in the evening the General Livestock Judging took place followed by Dairy and General Livestock judging. Crowds sat on bleachers, stood near their family members or fellow 4-H members nervously waiting for the results.

Exhibits filled the 4-H building with entries in a wide array of categories including Fine Arts, Farm Products, Vegetable Gardening, Orchard, Apiarian Department, Golden Age Needlework, Needlework, Quilts, Quilts-Novice, Minnesota themed Quilts, Sr. Citizen 70 & older quilts, Canning, Baked Products, Woodworking, Flowers, and Homemade Wines & Beer. There were impressive entries in every division making judging a difficult task.

Ashley Williams, age 12, was very happy to receive a Blue Ribbon for her Oriental Roller pigeon. Courtney Greiner, age 17, of Hancock, Minn. and Hope Morrison, age 17, of Fillmore County, were also busy getting ready for the Dairy Judging. Once the signal was given, each participant entered the ring and formed a single line to show his or her livestock. In the same building the Swine Judging was also taking place. Viewers could see the judges’ faces examining each entry to choose the top place finishers.

Tuesday evening was also Church Worship Night. A small but enthusiastic group of people enjoyed the service and sang many favorite songs including “Yes, Jesus Loves Me” and several others. Everyone in attendance joined in to make beautiful music together.

Additional 4-H activities continued on Wednesday including Horse Training, Swine Show, Horse Trail & Game Show, Open Class Judging and a Sheep Show in the morning.

Wednesday afternoon was a favorite for families with Armband Hours from 1 - 5 p.m. ECFE was busy making crafts on Wednesday afternoon as well. The Awards Program took place Wednesday evening followed by the 4-H Live Auction.

The Grandstand belonged to 4-H on Wednesday evening with a Fashion Revue, the Friend of 4-H Award, and Hall of Fame Induction. Music by Doug Otto and the Get Aways began their show at 8:30 p.m. in the Grandstand. This is always a very fun night for the 4-H members to take a .....
