There are some folks who really enjoy the county fair and then there are those whose life just wouldn’t be complete each summer without it. Julie Smith says she’s one of those—a die hard fan.
Julie has enjoyed the county fair since she was a young girl. This year, she entered a division in the Fairest of the Fair pageant and placed 2nd runner up.
She and Daniel Calahan took in just about every event from livestock competitions to riding the Ferris Wheel.
The food booths were awesome, she says. “We just enjoy the fair, so much.”
They were also exhibitors in several of the competitions. Daniel won first in one of the dog shows with their fur buddy, “Chloe.” Julie says the dogs felt right at home at the Ag Center, including pup “Gracie.”
The two entered a lot of the competitions, taking home several ribbons again this year.
Daniel was a champion at some the game booths. They attended car shows and cow shows. “We enjoyed learning about the old farm tools,” notes Julie.
They were there to support friends performing in shows. They enjoy the music and Mid-State Cloggers.
As the fair closed up on Saturday night at the fairgrounds, Julie was a little sad, but says she’s proud there’s still a county fair in her hometown.
“It’s a yearly tradition for us.”
