Carroll County Fair opens Saturday at Flora park

Nearly 300 hogs to be entered at Thursday show.


Other highlights include a new community worship service at 11 a.m. Sunday, the Harvest a Quilt show Tuesday in the project building and the showmanship competitions — small animal showmanship will be 1:30 p.m. Wednesday and beef, sheep and swine showmanship will be 7 p.m. Thursday.

Lytton said one thing won’t be a worry this year — there’s plenty of rain to keep the grass from becoming a fire hazard.

“I’m not worried about my rocket launch this year,” she said. “Last year I had to cancel it because of the drought. This year, as long as it’s not raining, it’ll come off.”

The rocket launch will involve 4-H’ers sending off their aerospace projects into the skies above the fair and is slated to take place around noon Thursday in the horse arena.

Nightly community dinners are also on the docket, in keeping with other family-themed events.

“They come to see the kids and whatever family and friends are doing,” explained Lytton, noting that there are no carnival rides. “The neat thing about the Carroll County Fair — if you haven’t been there — it’s a family deal.”

“I think fair will be a lot of fun,” Lytton added. “And hopefully it will cool off a little bit with this lovely rain we’re having.”
