Enterprise Newsletter • Attend the Converse County Fair at the Wyoming State Fairgrounds!
Make plans to attend the Converse County Fair!
Converse County youth will be participating in their county fair beginning with the horse show on July 10 and spanning through July 21. The community is encouraged to attend the shows, take part in the events and peruse the exhibit halls.
If Summer 2018 had a theme, it might just be "volunteers truly do make a difference in our communities." The 2018 Converse County Fair is the latest example. The events offered at the annual gathering continue to grow.

On Saturday, July 14, Converse County Bank is sponsoring a free Joe Nichols concert beginning at 7 p.m. Beginning at 6 p.m. on July 17 it's "Family Fun Night" at the fair. Mutton bustin', pig wrestling and games for the kids are just part of the fun.

Kolton's Karnival, this year benefitting Haley Cattoor, is being held on July 19 at the fairgrounds. All proceeds raised at the event will help Haley and her family with medical bills. The event has historically been held at the KOA.
Animals are shown throughout the week. Those interested in attending are encouraged to download a complete schedule at the below link. While you're on the grounds, be sure to see the handcrafted items, photographs and other static exhibits.

The livestock sale, where businesses and individuals are invited to support the efforts of local youth, is scheduled for Friday, July 20 at 4 p.m.

Thank you to the numerous volunteers and hard-working staff that have brought this growing event to the Douglas community!
Get your entries ready for the State Fair Parade!
In 1919 the Wyoming State Fair Parade included a nice team of driving pigs named Jim Clark and Billee Stroud. The Enterprise, along with the team of volunteers hosting the 2018 State Fair Parade, is hopeful that this year's entries are equally creative!
The Enterprise has teamed up with a group of local entities and volunteers to host the 2018 Wyoming State Fair Parade on Saturday, Aug. 18.

"The parade is a long-held Douglas and Wyoming tradition," says Cindy Porter, Executive Director of The Enterprise. "It's a tradition we're committed to keeping alive and strong. Doing that, however, requires the community to join us in this effort by entering floats and attending the festivities."
The 2018 parade theme, much like the State Fair theme, is "That's WY." Via their parade entries participants are encouraged to show off their Wyoming pride.

Entries are due on Aug. 3 and can be dowloaded at the below link or by visiting the Railroad Museum and Visitors Center at 121 Brownfield Road in Douglas.

Prizes will be given in a variety of divisions including collector cars, non-profits, floats, entertainment and equestrian. Details appear on the entry form. Entries from political candidates and marching bands will not be judged, but registration by those groups is requested.

Please join in making 2018 a Wyoming State Fair Parade to remember!
