An early morning call to the fair office was answered by an appropriately busy fair administrator today, who confirmed without hesitation that the Centennial Boundary County Fair is not just a go, it’s actually going!
“Everything is right on track,” Paula Burt said.
And there’s a lot going on … open class exhibits are being entered, swine fitting and showing, poultry fitting and showing, food booths are opening at 11 a.m., chainsaw carving a 1 p.m., and a lot more, leading up to the highlight of today’s schedule, the fair opening ceremonies and announcement of this year’s fair royalty at 6:30 p.m. in the indoor arena.
After an interesting years so far, to put it politely, it’s going to be exciting to get out to the fair, but all fair-goers are asked to remember that a pandemic still looms, and to take what steps you can to help slow the spread of COVID-19.
Sanitation stands will be set up around the fairgrounds at which fair goers can wash and disinfect their hands and the wearing of masks is encouraged, as is maintaining social distancing to the greatest extent possible, recognizing that you’ll be seeing friends and acquaintances you likely haven’t seen in a long time!
