St. Joe County 4-H Fair comes to an end


Although it was a bit of a wet week at the St. Joe County Fair crowds came out in droves for the annual event.

Compared to last year's extreme heatwave, this year was quite the opposite. A representative from the fair says the rain hurt them badly on Tuesday, but luckily the rest of the week more than made up for it.

Two of the days were their best attendance in five years.

Lee Slavinskas,Fair Board President said, "I'll be perfectly frank and say we've had less problems, less complaints, less issues, less breakdowns than we've ever had, so it was pleasant working the fair."

Saturday was the last day for rides, funnel cakes, and 4-H competitions. The fair ended with lawnmower races and an auction Saturday.

Organizers have already begun planning next year's fair.
