    I am sure they try hard, but they must be in the large shadow of the state fair.

    Re: Story County Fair

    If you grew up as a 4H/FFA member and exhibited projects, why not go out and support those kids. You may find it's a walk down memory lane and even want to give back a little by judging something next year.


    All truisms are false. All of them.

    Re: Story County Fair

    It is really the "4H/FFA Story Co Fair". Great if you want to exhibit or see the exhibits of school aged kids. Not much else to see there. I'll be in the poultry barn with my kids if you want to say Hi.

    Re: Story County Fair

    They do have a county fair, although it's probably smaller than what most people are used to. It is entirely 4-H/FFA exhibits and no commercial exhibits or rides. Being from a smaller county fair myself, I enjoy going and will be going over later today. If you are used to larger county fairs or the state fair, you may not find it very exciting.

    As someone who has grown up in Nevada, unless you are someone with an animal or project in the fair it's a joke.

    I will stop by and judge you, trying to be ahead of the curve and not wait until next year.

    Good luck with the poultry though. I do think 4H is a great way to spend time with your kids.
