Thursday night featured the Miss Houghton County Queen Pageant, in the Indoor Arena stage area. There were 8 candidates for the Queen Title. Here, the winner is announced. The Main Arena attraction Thursday were the Motocross Races.
Also entertaining on stage were the Hancock Elementary School Kivijat Dancers. An always popular attraction, the Antique Tractors display. The Market Beef Steer Show also is held on Friday, at the Livestock Pavilion.
Fair goers enjoy the animals, in this case, the horse barn. And adjacent, the small animal barn. The T.J.Schmidt and Company Carnival provides many rides and amusements for young and old. The Annual Tractor Pulling Contest brought a large group of tractors this year to try their hand, this pull is by Howard Junkin, of Boston Location. His son and granddaughter also participated.
And the Superior Pipe and Drums Corps, including this sword dance. The exotic animal display area is a big draw for the youngsters.
In the Main Arena, the Draft House Pull. Our Fair Queen(4th from the right), and her Court, sing daily our National Anthem, and make appearances. Great fun on the many rides available.
A large crowd is on hand as dusk falls. And during a break in the Show, this fire breathing mechanical monster invades the Main Arena, the Megasaurus. Sunday brings another popular event, the very popular Demolition Derby.Join us next year for the Houghton County Fair.
