The Mitchell County Fair was held to great success this last week, and thousands descended to the fairgrounds to celebrate the very best that Mitchell County has to offer, with a full slate of events revolving around agricultural education and it’s preservation for our youth and businesses of Mitchell County and the surrounding areas.
Students of all age groups who have worked tirelessly throughout the year submitted thousands of exhibits of all sorts; from living breathing animals to baked goods, crafts and works of art (and much more) that impressed judges and earned them ribbons and a chance for commendation at the Iowa State Fair later this month.
On Wednesday, Miss Mitchell, Emmi Taets was crowned the 2017 Mitchell County Fair Queen, and Ma’Kiyaha Jackson and Lucas Johanns were each crowned Little Miss and Little Mister Mitchell County.
The Mitchell County Fair Board provided top-notch entertainment for fairgoers all weekend long, with headlining events drawing huge crowds to the grandstand; including combine and car demolition derbies on Thursday and Saturday, respectively, and live music from rock and roll acts ‘Challenger’ and ‘Menace’ on Thursday and Friday.
Congratulations to all who participated in the Mitchell County Fair, and job-well done to all who make the fair possible each year! Without the countless hours of hard work and dedication of numerous volunteers, our county fair would simply not be possible.
