We went right to the expert for guidance on what to see, do and take in at The Linn County Fair from June 28-July3, 2017! Alburnett High School student, Kayla Hospodarsky answered a few questions - check it out below. Kayla is more than qualified to share her Fair experiences, she has been the Dandy Doers 4-H Vice President for one year, their President for two years, and the Alburnett FFA Secretary for one year.
CR: Do you show at the Fair? If so, what?
Kayla: Yes, Sheep and Beef Cattle
CR: What is your favorite activity at the Fair and why?
Kayla: Showing and watching the livestock shows because you get to see first hand the hard work put in pay off.
CR: What is your favorite food to eat at the fair?
Kayla: Lemonade Shake ups because after a long tiring day that's just what I need.
CR: What should someone who has never been to the Fair make sure to see or do?
Kayla: Check out the static exhibits in the Linn Dunn Building and the petting zoo to familiarize yourself with the livestock at the fair.
CR: What is the best thing for younger kids to do at the Fair?
Kayla: Come on Youth Day (Thursday, June 29) as there are many activities for youth on that day and go through the petting zoo.
CR: Anything else we should mention?
Kayla: To be safe around the animals. Always ask before touching them and be quiet around them as much as possible, but have fun and learn about the many projects 4-H and FFA members have been working on year round!
