Yippee - It's Fair Time!!!
It's county fair time! Are you planning on attending the local county fair? Have you ever thought of exhibiting at your fair? Believe it or not, you can enter exhibits at your fair. Anything from baking to photography to scrapbooking to woodworking and everything in between can be entered. Back "in the day" the county fair was where you went to see who had the best cookies or grew the biggest vegetables. Let's get that back! They challenge YOU to enter something in your local fair. Why not spend next weekend baking to enter the Blue Earth County Fair...July 20th-23rd. Even if you don't get any ribbons you will at least have some delicious baked goods to enjoy!
To check out how to enter go to and look for open class. See you at the fair!!
