For ''Homemade & Homegrown'' - head to the Antrim County Fair
Fri, 09 Aug 2013 18:30:48 GMT —
The 33rd Antrim County Fair is in town through Saturday.
Located in Bellaire, the fair focuses on what the northern Michigan farming community is all about.
Featuring a "Homemade or Homegrown" theme, the fair showcases craftsmanship, games, educational demonstrations, horticulture, and food.
Members of multiple 4-H clubs are also competing in equine showmanship and different judging events.
Organizers say there is something at the fair for everyone, but the focus is on the kids.
"My favorite part of the fair experience is helping the kids that are not involved in agriculture in the community interact with and talk to their friends and their peers that are involved in agriculture," said Triston Cole, an Antrim County Fair volunteer. "98% of people are not involved in ag-so the 2% of us that are, it's very important that we share our stories."
Friday evening will include Bingo, a Wings of Wonder Show, and the 4-H livestock auction.
The Antrim County Fair continues through Saturday, which is family day. Saturday will include multiple events and is expected to be the fair's biggest day.
Saturday includes a pancake breakfast, pony & covered wagon rides, dog sled rides and demonstrations, a fish hatchery exhibit, a greased pig contest, a dog show, a horse pull and youth tractor pull, a bonfire, and multiple other demonstrations.
