Our fair citizens
“Party with the animals” was the slogan of this year’s Mesa County Fair.
From bull riding to bulldozers, carnival rides to canned peaches, lambs to livestock — the fair had a little something for everyone.
For kids young and old to kids with fur and horns, the fair offered entertainment to thousands of visitors and participants last week.
Acrobats and artists and an antique tractor pull. BMX stunt riders and bands playing music. Cirque gymnasts, car shows, and contests galore.
For those who missed the fun here, fair season is just getting started.
The Montrose County Fair begins July 24 and goes through Aug. 2.
The Delta County Fair in Hotchkiss is scheduled from Aug.1 through Aug. 8, and the Garfield County Fair in Rifle runs from Aug. 3 through Aug. 8.
Finally, there’s the granddaddy of them all — the Colorado State Fair from Aug. 28 through Sept. 7 in Pueblo.
