All last week if you had nothing to do, you could have headed up to The Clare County fair. Those that did were treated to Earhart’s Globe of Death, Fabulous Pages trapeze thrills, including the famous Aerialist Carla Wallenda. As always there were amusement rides, cotton candy, elephant ears and tasty treats. Grandstand shows were held everynight, there were concerts, rodeos, tractor pulls, Demo Derbys, Motocross and Harness Racing. During the day 4-H youth competed for showmanship and top breed awards hoping they earned grade A ribbons so they could sell their animals at the auctions.

There were several winners during the week from Best of Show Rabbit to Grand Champion Steere. For more pictures from the fair be sure to check out our facebook page and view our Clare County Fair albums. there are lots of smiles to share. More pictures on page 5B.
