Fair favorites

Week at the Cass County fair gets underway


”This is a nice fair. It really is,” Gallaher said.

Susan Phillips, of Royal Center, and Gina Nethercutt, of Lake Cicott, sat together Monday. Phillips said she enjoys seeing people during fair week.

She said two of her three children showed rabbits and she enjoyed watching.

Nethercutt, who attended the queen contest, said she enjoyed watching the Little, Junior and Teen Miss contest. She said she also likes walking around, people watching and the merchant buildings.

Four members of the queen court — Claire Crum, Ashley Galbreath, Nicole Korniak and Haley Maxwell — were out Monday collecting lemon shake-ups from the Lewis Cass stand. They each said they were looking forward to various livestock shows, including the sheep, swine, cattle and goat shows. They said they were also looking forward to the country concert Wednesday night.

Other people committed on the Pharos-Tribune Facebook page about what they were looking forward to the most about the fair week.

Kevin Lee Coffin said the concert, while Ashley Scott said watching her niece and cousins show off their livestock.

Alan Sorenson said he was looking forward to the tractor pull, and Victoria French said elephant ears and entering contests in the Merchants Building.

”I won 50 lbs. of horse feed once,” French said. “It was great.”

”What’s not to like about the Cass County fair,” Leanne asked. “A county fair is about as American as it gets.”
