I was really disappointed in the Livestock Barn this year, most of the barn was closed due to change of species and today they were bringing in cattle and the barn was closed until afternoon. Every year in the past when I have gone to the fair they have had hundreds of ewes in large pens due to lamb throughout the 11 days of the fair. This year the whole project was downsized with maybe 50 ewes max and only 1 had lambed so far with a set of twins. Six days into the fair I expected to see lambs everywhere. Some of these by the looks of their udders may not even lamb before the fair ends Sunday.
Just a few of the fantastic quilts on display at the fair. There were hundreds of quilts on display hanging on balcony railing all around the building.
At one of the entrances to the fair is a great place for kids, an amusement park quality play area.
Ol' prospecter shows you how to pan for gold, a fort to climb up in the towers and slide down. A pirate ship and a place to fish
