(BEDFORD) – The Lawrence County Fair is open for a week of fun, food, and gathering of friends.
The animals, crafts, and many other 4-H projects are now all in place. Everyone is working hard to get the final touches done prior to the contests and judging.
On Saturday evening, the fairgrounds opened up with the carnival rides all set-up and ready to receive fairgoers. This Wednesday you can purchase two wristbands at a cost of $25. On other nights the wristbands will average around $15 to $20 each.
The show arena was dedicated to the late Jerry Lambrecht and his wife Brenda. Lawrence County fairgoers should be aware of the work and dedication they contributed over the years for 4-H.
Jerry’s long time friend Bill Spreen was able to provide many comments about Jerry’s work at the auction and how his hands touched the fairgrounds in many other ways.
Everyone craves the fair foods that would drive your doctor insane. The midway is all set-up for many of your favorites, not to mention the many other booths that line the fairgrounds from the Lawrence County Cattlemen’s Association, 4-H Junior Leaders Stand, and the Fayetteville Lion’s Club.
The fair has something for everyone… from the young to the old. If you get too hot you can always cool off inside the Exhibition Hall with several vendors to see.
When you see them, be sure to encourage the youth that have worked hard all year on their projects and getting the animals ready for presentations.
This year, the rodeo will not take place due to the lack of sponsors, according to Fair Board President Rick Wessel. There are still many activities that you can take part in including the pig wrestling contest that will happen Monday evening.
