Fair exhibitors, are you ready?

By Diana Colgan

The 67th annual Clearwater County Fair and Orofino Lumberjack Days will be held Sept. 11-14, which is only a week away. The big weekend event takes place in Orofino City Park, with exhibits, activities, and events that are interesting, fun and exciting. The theme for the activity-filled weekend is “Rooted in Tree-dition.”

Fair books have been distributed throughout Clearwater County and Peck and are available at the Clearwater County Extension Office and area businesses. Residents of Clearwater County and Peck are encouraged to enter exhibits on Thursday, Sept. 11, for the judging and awarding of ribbons which takes place on Friday, Sept. 12.

The Exhibit Building will be filled with interesting booths decorated by businesses, organizations, schools, government agencies, and others with special interests and hobbies, plus the interesting exhibits that have been entered for judging by the creative and talented residents of our area.

The Fair Barn will be filled with 4-H and Open Class livestock entries, including chickens and rabbits. Horses that have competed in the 4-H and Open Class horse shows will also be on display. 4-H members will be busy with the livestock projects they have raised and trained for the fitting and showing and judging contests.

Did you paint a picture, make a quilt, sew a shirt, crochet a doily, knit a sweater, embroider or cross-stitch a picture, weave a mat, build a Legos castle, take an interesting photo, grow some tomatoes, bake some cookies, can some fruit, raise some chickens, or find some beautiful flowers in your yard that you would like to enter in the fair?

These are but a few of the items that can be entered for judging and will be enjoyed by the many people who visit the Fair. It’s a time to be proud of what you can do and what you have done.

Information for entering exhibits for judging and listings of scheduled weekend events in both the Exhibit Building and Fair Barn can be found in the Fair Book.

Plan to spend several fun filled days at the Clearwater County Fair. Enter your favorite projects. And, don’t forget to bring a friend!
