The Miss Teen Houghton County Queen Pageant was as usual held on opening evening, in the Main Indoor Arena. Chosen by a panel of three judges, was Alexis Aho, 16, of Calumet, a High School junior. Her parents are Stephanie and Tim Booth, of Calumet. A part of the Whispering Pines Mobile Zoo feature. This frisky goat is looking for a snack.
Also Thursday evening is Motocross Racing. These younger riders come of the starting gate. A bit later, the older riders take to the course. Lots of air under these riders. Friday brings Senior Citizen Day, with music, entertainment, and a free lunch for all seniors who attend. The crowd lines up for lunch, others less mobile will be served. A Raffle follows.
Some of the Exhibits on display in the Youth Exhibits Building. The Youth Dairy and Beef Show.
The always favorite, the Tractor Pull. More exotic animals - a camel. The Marvelous Mutts Show. This young pit bull goes after the thrown object, to snag it before he hits the water in the pool. He really gets into the air, and is successful. More logging skills at the Great Lakes Timber Show, on Saturday.
Another Spectrum Carnival ride meets with favor from adventuresome youths. Also on Saturday, in the indoor Arena, the Youth Talent Show, where many youngsters have a chance to show their talent before the public. These gals practice walking a wire. In the evening, prior to the Main Event, the Keweenaw Detachment of the Marine Corps League, raises the American Flag during our National Anthem.
The Main entertainment Saturday, is the Midwest Monster Truck Show. A LOT of horsepower. On Sunday, the Demolition Derby was the feature event in the Main Arena. Groups of 4 cars reduce to one survivor, until the final survivors Championship round. This competitor found himself getting flipped over, requiring Arena workers and Hancock Vounteer Fire Department members to extricate him, so the car could be removed. There were no injuries. Great fun for all ages. See you at the Houghton County Fair next August.
