Fall has arrived and that means that it's time for our county fair, the Buckwheat Festival! All over the county young and old are making preparations to enter their best - best hay, best pumpkin, best canned beans, best handiwork- competing for blue ribbons and Best of Show. 4-H and FFA club members are getting their animals ready for show and will take them to the fairground barns today. Lena will take Bella and Edward, her 4-H market lambs, this evening. She broke her wrist last week so this is sure to be an adventure; please wish her lots of luck.
The fairgrounds are being readied, and soon we will all delight in the colors, the sights, the sounds, the parades, the pageantry... delight in all that is our county fair... the Preston County Buckwheat Festival!
