Atchison Co Fair

Events for tomorrow and Thursday include the Beef Show tomorrow evening at five and the Swine Show Thursday evening, also beginning at 5.

Friday's events begin with the Sheep and Goat Shows at 9, and conclude with the Livestock Premium Auction and Buyers Appreciation Supper at 5. Fair committee Vice President Jeff Riley says the premium auction is a unique way for community members to reward young people for all the work they put into raising their livestock.

The fair concludes with a full day slate of activities on Saturday. A parade will be held at ten that morning, followed by a pulled-pork lunch at the Rockport Memorial Building. Saturday is also Kid's Fun Day, with various game booths and other activities for kids and their parents to take part in. An Antique Tractor Show is also on the list of activities for Saturday - it will begin at 1.
