Entries for the 4-H exhibits arrive Tuesday and displays will be open that evening for viewing during the free sneak-a-peek.
Judging for 4-H and open class begins at 9 a.m. on Wednesday and continues throughout the week. The beef, swine and sheep show is scheduled for 9:30 a.m. Wednesday in the Livestock Pavilion. Cultural arts, plants and soils and flowers and house plants will also be judged that day.
Thursday kicks off with the 4-H Horse Show. At 9 a.m. Thursday the poultry and rabbits will be judged. Come and vote for your favorite bird — the exhibitor with the most votes gets a fabulous prize. Baby geese will also be on display. Clothing, knitting and crocheting and communications projects will also be judged Thursday.
The Beef Association Livestock Auction begins at 7 p.m. Thursday in the Livestock Pavilion. Come and see the 4-H kids present their year-long accomplishments.
The Farm Zoo will be open from 1-6 p.m. Friday and 1-6 p.m. Saturday in the Livestock Pavilion. This is an opportunity for kids of all ages to learn more about the animals, take a tour, do some hands-on activities and crafts, and maybe a calf or two will come in and say “hello.” Farm Zoo is an event created by Katie Peltier and brought to the fair by the Douglas County 4-H, The Beef Association, The Head of the Lakes Fair, and The Farmer’s Union. It is open to all ages.
On Saturday, the Dairy Show begins at 9:30 a.m. in the Livestock Pavilion with dairy cattle, dairy goats and open class sheep being judged.
All exhibits will be on display at the Head of the Lakes Fairgrounds from noon to 10 p.m. Tuesday; 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. Wednesday-Saturday; and 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sunday.
