Fair days in Ferndale

Five photos of various activities at the Humboldt County Fair.

1. Champion Rhode Island Red

4-H and FFA youth competed for champion titles in several classes. Pictured is the Champion Rhode Island Red displayed with several other champion class winners.

2. Collections

An unfamiliar part of the Fair but often very intriguing is the collections competition where participants submit their rare or unusual collections. Three collections are pictured showing the variety of entries from young and old.

3. Herbs

In the chicken barn you could find the vegetable entries and lining the wall a variety of herbs.

4. Nascar Simulator

During the first week of the Fair visitors could take a turn at a Nascar simulator. The simulator used a monitor to provide the race track complete with racing sounds. The operator encouraged and corrected drivers while they raced. Other Nascar attractions included a starting line to test your reflexes.

5. Richard Conway Birthday

Interim General Manager Richard Conway celebrated his 50th Birthday on the job last Friday with staff. Staff bought Conway lunch and placed a candle singing happy birthday.
