The Brown County Fair kept 4-Hers and their families enjoyed a productive week at Horton last week.

A walk around the livestock barn gave visitors a peek at poultry, lambs, sheep, cattle and much more. Everywhere you turned, kids were busy learning and showing their animals or projects. The Blue Building was full of projects including crafts, horticulture, clothing, photography and more.

The fair kicked off July 8, with 4-Hers bringing in their projects all day that day and then on Friday the 9th was the dog show, pet show and fashion revue.

Monday, the animals arrived as the livestock barn was set up for the week’s events. Tuesday the showing started and continued through Thursday with other special events including pony rides, face painting, the annual parade, a pedal power tractor pull, bounce houses, BBQ, Holle’s Dance Studio performance and the Tim Strathman Band to name a few.

On Friday, the fair wrapped up with awards program, livestock sale and, of course, clean-up and the trip home with pride in a good week’s work.

Watch upcoming editions of the Hiawatha World for fair results.
