We have a Fair Queen!
Last night was a BIG night for Clark County Fair Fans! Our 2016 Fair Court Queen was crowned! You might remember that three princesses were selected on the last night of the Fair back in August. Since then, Mikaela, Shaylee, and Serenity have been keeping very busy learning about how to talk to the media […]

This Saturday night — February 6 — we will finally find out which of the three Clark County Fair Court Princesses will be our Queen for the 2016 Fair and all the events and excitement leading up to […]
Yep, I gained weight from all that Fair Food
I promised I would share how much weight I gained with all the ridiculous eating I did during the Fair. I got on the scale the morning of Opening Day (August 7) and again at the same time of the morning after the Fair ended (August 17). I have tracked both my weight and my […]
The Final Fair Food Feast Parade!
Well, that’s that. The end of my 10 days of gluttony. No more deep fried anything, no more chips, no more mayonnaise, no more carbonated sugar day after day. It was great fun but I gotta be honest, I have been craving a salad for three days. So here is the very last Fair Food […]
Next year’s Fair has a new Court!
It has been a long, exciting, hair-sprayed day. Six young teen women have spent the day vying to be on the 2016 Clark County Fair Court. They have given speeches, done a few modeling turns on the runway, answered impromptu questions, and shown off their horsemanship skills in the horse arena. I followed them all […]
Has the Fair inspired your kid to join 4-H?
Oh, to be a kid again! If I were, I would be pestering my parents to let me join 4-H. Seeing all the kids at the Fair this week with their animals and projects and ribbons makes me wish I could go back in time and trade all those hours I spent with my new […]

All day today, six young women will be competing to see who will be the 2016 Queen and her two Princesses. The public is invited […]
Fair Food Feast Parade ~ Day 9
Somehow my body knows the party is almost over. Boo! I can tell my appetite is slowing down and I’m not pleased. I should have added an ear of corn or a corn dog or something on a stick today. Instead, this is all we’ve got. So sad. Toni WoodardI […]
Mounted Patrol – Heroes on horseback
This year’s Fair theme is superheroes. We all know about Superman and Spider-Man and their buddies. But did you know the Clark County Fair has its own real-life do-gooders keeping us safe and protected and helping us find our way in the darkness? And they do all that on horses. Awesome, right? Unintentionally hidden in […]
