2018 Fair kicks off Sunday

Jul 12, 2018

By David Hotle, The JOURNAL

 

The 2018 Washington County Fair will kick off Sunday and run through the following Friday. Among the events scheduled Sunday will be the choosing of and crowning of a queen to represent the fair.

Washington County 4-H Youth director Amy Green said there are several new attractions for the fair, including an aerial picture of all 4-H members.

“We are going to be gathering as many people as possible for our 4-H family photo,” she said. ‘We are going to be taking an aerial photo with Continuum Ag’s drone. We are going to get all our 4-H people together Monday at noon in the shape of a clover. We can use that in the promotion of our story and capture a bunch of our volunteers, alumni, anyone who is part of what is going on we are inviting.”

She said the photo will be taken in the grassy lot south of the grandstand.
