People continued to drop off entries today in Arts and Photography, and Family and Consumer Sciences. For most contests, fairgrounds staff are responsible for displaying all the entries. The 4-H Hay Bale Decorating Contest is an exception to that rule. Each year, a dozen or so 4-H groups participate in the competition, lining the grassy strip between the Scott Building and Kiddieland with an assortment of bright and creative hay bales. Today, Wilkes County 4-H came out to set up its display – a tribute to Dr. Seuss. Do you see the familiar hat?
