The theme should reflect the spirit of the County Fair in as few words as possible. It can be based on the bounty of the area’s fields and ranches, the spirit of the county’s people, the optimism of youth or a proverbial favorite, cute and cuddly animals. Just to name a few. “The Fair belongs to all of us and we like to have as much input from our Fair friends and neighbors as possible” noted Kegebein. And he has a reward for the winning entry, “The winner will receive a VIP Family Pack for 4 which is: One Parking Pass, Four Admissions, Four Carnival Wristbands and $100 Food Concession Bucks.”
