Remember When 

What Happened To Our Fair?


Oh my gosh, what is happening to our Northeast Montana Fair?

Do you remember attending the fair just to look at exhibits?

There were all of the farm equipment and camper trailers on display, the games of horseshoes, and that background music that made you know you were at the fair.

There was the gathering of neighbors and friends sitting on a bench discussing events.

A tip of the hat to all who made the effort to bring exhibits to the fair.

Remember when the number of entries you took to the fair was a bragging point, and livestock and the latest in farm equipment were the points of interest? There were even parking attendants directing your parking.

Could it be that county fairs, as a lot of us remember them, have become a thing of the past like so many other things?

My personal thought: If we would like the fair to continue, we, the general public, need to make an effort to take entries to the fair, support our vendors at fair, and make a wholehearted effort to make it work.
