It’s Weston County Fair time

NLJ Staff


t is time once again for the Weston County Fair. A time of year that is chock-full of events,
excitement and time with family
and friends. 

The festivities kick off this Friday evening with the fashion review and continue on Saturday with the parade and truck pulls. 

This year, organizers have come together to prepare several new activities and events for people of all ages including the ATV
gymkhana, a comedian, extreme rides and carnival games. Back again this year are community
favorites including the pig
wrestling, Weston County Has Talent and the mini roughstock rodeo. 

And like always, there will be a variety of animal shows, the Outlaw Motors Truck Pull, the ranch rodeo Heritage team roping and the
junior rodeo. 

This week of fun in the sun, and mud, is a cummulative event for so many members of the community, especially those youngsters that put in time and effort to raise animals to show and sell during the youth
livestock sale. So make sure you head on down Friday, July 30 to snatch up a pig, goat or some beef to fill your freezer or donate back to the youth. 

As you make your way down to the Weston County Fairgrounds to enjoy the week’s worth of events, don’t forget to stop and say thank you to all of the volunteers and organizers that make the fair
possible every year. 

Like always, the News Letter Journal will be your hot spot for photos and updates on the top
performers throughout the week so don’t forget to grab your copies of the paper the next few weeks and stay turned for the annual fair section. 

A full schedule is featured in this week’s edition, page 13, as well as stories highlighting events and youth projects, in the back section of the paper. We will see you at the fair!
