Michalec Family Fair Traditions by Michelle Michalec
Malts from the dairy building
Who can resist the frosty delicious malts from the dairy building? Not our family. Especially the strawberry!
Ye Old Mill Ride
The scenes are cheesy but it's a have to do it tradition. Of course trying to scare each other or telling tall tales about what happened on the ride in previous years is a must.
The Sky Ride
This is always a favorite. Not only is it time to rest your feet but my son enjoys yelling things like....wow that loop was crazy....which always makes me laugh.
Favorites are always the horse racing ball roll game , the ball toss into cups and basketball shooting. Bragging rights goes to the person who wins the most prizes.
4-H Fun! by Leah
State 4-H Arts In Show
Put on by some of the most talented teens in the state, this is a free half-hour song and dance show that is performed 3 to 4 times daily in the 4-H Building. It's a hidden gem.
4-H Fashion Revue
4-Hers strut their stuff on the catwalk showing their latest constructed or purchased garments. Earlier that day, they get modeling tips from none other than the great local legend Richard Moody.
It's amazing what these 4-Hers can do and make! Walking around the building to see their projects is inspiring. My favorites are the photography and woods exhibits.
State 4-H Ambassadors
Make sure you walk through the front door to be greeted by the State Ambassadors. These leaders promote the 4-H program, volunteer with 4-H programming throughout the fair and throughout the year, and are always willing to help you out with any question or need.
