J.D. Sexton’s said his first Moffat County Fair as county extension and 4-H youth agent was a rousing success. “The fair was exceptional this year,” said Sexton, whose duties include coordinating area 4-H programs. “The biggest highlight for me was how hard the kids worked, the quality kids that we have, and all the volunteers and all the time they put in to make this happen.” Though pen requests and animal entries were due July 15, the fair kicked off in earnest late last month at the Moffat County Fairgrounds, with shooting competitions and general projects occupying the early part of the schedule, among other events. Horse and dog shows took center stage during the first week of August, and livestock showing and judging highlighted the later part of last week, which also included live entertainment and games on the fair’s midway.
