I am super excited for the fair this year because it's supposed to be the biggest one yet with lots of dif- ferent things to do. I personally don't know of any new additions they are having for this year's fair other than the kickoff concert. That does not mean that I can't be less excited though. Every year, I love going to, and being a part of the Walsh County Fair. Of course, I can't remember when I started going, but I have al- ways loved being there. Seeing all of the different 4-H, FFA, and Open Class projects and being able to smell the livestock barns throughout the entire building can always make me smile. Its both easy and a lit- tle difficult to imagine that the fair has been going on for 100 years. Difficult because I can't really imagine something lasting that long, but easy because it's a really cool event. Even if the fair is going to be really cool this year, I still have to start on doing 4-H projects. Even though I always have good intentions of getting my projects done months before the fair, I always seem to end up doing a bunch of last minute projects. I also know that I am not alone in this sad case of procrastination. Even if you are more stressed about getting all your projects ready for fair time than excited about how it is the 100 anniversary of the Walsh County Fair, I is still going to be a wonderful fair.
