2015 Pope County Fair

Wild RideDespite intermittent rain making some mud last Thursday, little ones made tracks to and through the Pope County Fair for Daycare Day. The Children’s Barnyard was a popular stop on the tour of the fair. Petting a goat brought out smiles from Ally Shiffler. Children started off their day with arts and crafts, making a fluffy and colorful sheep with cotton balls and crayons. Other days included Senior Citizen’s Day, Family Day and Hometown Hero Day.

The Miniature Tuff-n-Nuff Rodeo rocked the Grandstand at the Pope County Fair on Saturday evening with barrel racing, bull riding, miniature bareback riding and wild pony races. The younger ages had to ride the bull for six seconds to be scored by the judges.

From turtle races to racing rides on the midway, special events and (of course) fair food, this year’s Pope County Fair had something for everyone to enjoy.
