Fair days are near

We are just days away from the start of the Clark County Fair, which begins on Saturday, June 17.

Now is the time to get your Exhibit Hall entries ready.

Do you have a favorite cake recipe that your family loves?

What about cream candy — is yours the creamiest?

Maybe you take photographs of your grandchildren and have just the shot.

It’s time to get those things together and enter them in the Clark County Fair.

Fair books are now available, or you can go to our web site at http://ces.ca.uky/edu/clark/familyconsumersciences and print out all the categories.

Entries will be received at Floral Hall on the grounds of the Clark County Fair from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Monday, June 19. A recently-added category is the Coloring Book Contest.

There are three age categories: Adults (18 and older), 12 to 17-year-olds, 12 year old and under. First-, second- and third-place winners will be awarded in each category. One page entry per person.

For more information on entries in Floral Hall, contact the Clark County Extension Office at 744-4682 or visit us on the web at http://ces.ca.uky/edu/clark.
