LEETOWN: Jefferson County fair officials are excited for next week’s action on the Fields of Justice starting this weekend. After a difficult decision to cancel the 2020 show due to the COVID-19 epidemic, organizers, exhibitors and attendees may be anxiously awaiting the official opening.
According to Justice Manager Todd Wilt, the show should be beautiful and casual – everyone has something to be proud of.
We have an estimated 650 animals from the 200 exhibitions at the fair ” There is a wheel.
These exhibitions include adults and young people who bring 4-H or FF animals to competitions.
Exhibitions in other areas range from cancer and baking to needlework, handicrafts, photography and gardening. Adults and young people can enter all of these exhibitions on Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Fairgoers can look forward to their favorite activities, such as tractor trailer, fire racing, demolition derby and Tuff truck and car racing. Favorites such as the Chip Chip Bingo and the annual 4-H and FAF bakery auction are also on tap. Young people can look forward to every competition, from bubble-sweeping to apple-eating and corn-eating events.
Spectators can gather at any time of the day or at the stage for performances and competitions, including towing trucks and tractors, woodworking, music entertainment, and more.
Each of the county’s middle and high school bands opened on Mondays and Tuesdays, and on Wednesday and Tuesday nights, the country’s music legend Wilon Jennings took to the stage. On Thursday night, the Revolution Band will perform. Each of these entertainment options is included in the paid entrance to the show – no extra fees.
During Sunday afternoon’s opening ceremonies, spectators are encouraged to attend the Miss Jefferson County Show on Saturday night, beginning at 6:30 p.m., with Miss Jefferson County at 1:30 p.m. In the afternoon, all three fair competition winners will participate in and oversee a number of activities during Fair Week.
During the week, youngsters show off their animals, hoping to win the blue ribbon and the title of great champion.
As the fair approaches, those who want to sell their animals can do so at the annual animal auction on August 28. Local businesses and individuals have traditionally rallied to help young people raise money. Compensate for the costs of raising their animals or exporting them next year.
Those who want a full schedule can find it on the Jefferson County Fair Justice website or on the Facebook page where they are updated daily.
