2013 County fair opens Thursday

ENID, Okla. — Excitement is in the air as the annual Garfield County Fair is soon to be here

Local 4-Hers, OHCE groups, quilters, crafters and gardeners will be showcasing their talents beginning Thursday evening through Saturday. There will be educational displays, beautiful quilts, and lots of other creative items.

Something new this year sponsored by the Garfield County OHCE will be a pattern swap. Fairgoers are encouraged to peruse the table of craft/ sewing magazines, books, and patterns and take one that they can use. You also are invited to bring any patterns and books you would like to pass on to others.

The fair also will have several new additions this year as the Garfield County 4-H will bring in new events and activities. From 3:30-7:30 p.m. Saturday, there will be numerous activities to fill your afternoon and evening. Oklahoma State University insect exhibit will be available for fairgoers.

You will be able to meet live insects and their relatives up close and personal. Get answers to all those questions that have been “bugging” you about the world’s largest group of animals from a professional entomologist. It’s a hands-on activity you’ll be sure to remember and talk about for a long time.

After viewing the bugs, the youngsters will have an opportunity to visit and play the free carnival games. The 4-Hers across Garfield County will sponsor carnival games and free prizes from 3:30 to 7:30 p.m. We also are going to have the 4-H Shooting Sports trailer available for those under 18 to try their skills at the air rifle range with certified instructors.

At 4 p.m., the annual turtle and frog races will take place. Youths are encouraged to bring their fastest frog or turtle to compete in the contests. At 6 p.m., we encourage everyone to bring their favorite homemade ice cream and enter it in the ice cream crank-off.
