Head to the 4-H Fair!

As a former 4-H'er and mom of a former 4-H'er, I have to admit that I'm partial to this great program.
And having spent more than my share of time in barns -- both at home and at dairy shows -- I have to admit that I'm partial to the animal projects.
But 4-H has so much to offer to youths, so that you certainly don't have to live on a farm to be a 4-H member.
Today through Saturday, you can see the fruits of area kids' labors with their 4-H projects, take in some entertainment, enjoy great food and just generally have a lot of fun at the Montgomery County 4-H Fair.
It kicks off tonight from 6:30 to 9:30 p.m. at the 4-H Center on Route 113, Skippack.
On Friday it runs from 9:30 a.m. to 9:30 p.m. and on Saturday from 9:30 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Highlights include various shows of dairy, poultry and livestock animals, demonstrations of exotic animals and alpacas, children’s crafts, a magic show, music, games, a silent auction and a performance by the Daisy Jug Band.
Plus much, much more, including a pet show open to everyone on Saturday.
Parking is only $5. Call (610) 489-4315 for more information.
Hope to see you there!
