101st Montgomery County Fair now underway

CRAWFORDSVILLE, Ind. (WLFI) – Friday was day two of the 101st Montgomery County Fair. There will be plenty to do and see this at the fair this week.

“I think my favorite part about 4-H is just getting to see the same people every year. And you meet a lot of friends, and it’s just a lot of fun to see the community here,” said Montgomery County Fair queen Darian Stewart.

This year’s event will feature activities such as an excavator rodeo and the barn olympics.

Today’s festivities included the rabbit show, as well as the English horse and pony show.

“I submitted an application to the Clydesdale Breeders of the U.S.A. and they selected me to represent them as the National Clydesdale Queen,” said Montgomery County 4-H’er Makhalea Young. “I’m just really excited to be able to go out and meet some new people, and see what they can teach me, as well as what I can teach them.”

Organizers say their hogs are also a big draw.

“Wednesday is our hog show and we have one of the most competitive hog shows in the state. We’re known throughout the country,” said 4-H Incorporated President Jayne Lough.

“Our local FFA is doing a corn-hole tournament, and then we have a greased watermelon contest. There is a zip line Saturday, so there’s all kinds of entertainment this year,” said Lough.

The fair began on July 17 and runs until Thursday, July 24.
