More improvements at the fairgrounds

The Floral Hall has been redesigned in time for the opening of the 2015 Adams County Fair.

Renovations to the Floral Hall will greet visitors to the 2015 Adams County Fair.

Many of the renovations tothe Floral Hall were due to the hard work of the Adams County Beef and More 4H Club.

The 124th Adams County Fair is fast approaching and this week the focus is on The Floral Hall and The Merchant’s Hall. The Floral Hall has been redesigned to showcase new items such as Floral Arrangements, Organics, Sauces, Honey, Beeswax, Maple Syrup, and Sorghum Molasses. A variety of items have been added to the Culinary categories, including Youth. Some items have been completely taken out of The FloraI Hall such as “Christmas in July” and the “Scarecrows”. The Floral Hall has a new Hall Secretary, Susan May, and the Directors are Tonya Kersey, Chairman, Liz Lafferty and Laura Rogers.

Judges will be professional people with backgrounds in each of the designated divisions. There is a Chef, Herb Guild Members, Photographers, Artists, an Illustrator, and other people from the Arts Council and Home Economics to fairly judge all the entries.

The Adams County Beef and More 4H Club painted the entire interior of The Floral Hall as their Community Service Project to update the space from the traditional white to an exciting, warm-toned space that will showcase beautiful quilts, photography, arts and crafts, fine arts, canned goods, floral arrangements, and much more.

The Fair Book is out in the community and the Entry Form and all the categories for The Floral Hall can be found on pages 44-52 and page 120. Close attention should be paid to when the items need to be in place this year. Times have changed, premiums have been increased, and pick up times have been extended to Saturday night since the Adams County Agricultural Society is focusing on making Saturday the biggest day of the Fair.

Families may only be able to come to the fair on their day off, which is Saturday and there needs to be exhibits still at the fair, animals still at the fair, and entertainment and merchants still at the fair. This year, Saturday will be a huge day at the Adams County Fair with Wrestling, Barnyard Olympics, rides, the Noah Smith Concert, and the Demolition Derby. Merchants and Vendors are asked to stay set up through the end of the Fair, which is 11 p.m. on Saturday, July 18.

If you are interested in a space in the Merchant’s Hall, it is $100 for an entire week of advertising your business, promoting your organization, meet and greet, selling your unique merchandise, etc. You can’t find that kind of price anywhere for an entire week. There are many new vendors scheduled for the Merchant’s Hall this year and if you are interested, you must contact Darlene Anderson or Amanda Smart before July 1. Merchant Hall booths need to be in place by 10 a.m. on Sunday, July 12 and stay in place until close of the fair at 11 p.m. on July 1h. Change is sometimes hard on people that are set in their ways, but big changes are happening, and The Adams County Agricultural Society wants you to be a part of the excitement, not apart from the excitement. See you at the Fair!
