Gallery: 100th Moffat County Fair activities, projects

Craig Press staff report

CRAIG — A wide variety of activities were available Saturday as part of the 100th Moffat County Fair, as attendees of all ages participated in family fun.

An early-morning pancake breakfast was provided by the local chapter of Future Farmers of America, while a firefighter course tested the mettle of kids and adults alike.

Live music throughout the day in the grassy area of the fairgrounds was complemented by miniature golf and a rock climbing wall, plus bounce houses and games by Adventure Zone.

On the midway, a shooting gallery by Colorado Parks and Wildlife was among the many booths, and a display of horsepower could be glimpsed in the collection of motorcycles in the Iron Horse Show.

Local 4-H projects and the quilt show — 100 Quilts, 100 Years — were on display beneath the grandstands, and in the fairgrounds pavilion were table after table of community-submitted crafts.

Contests for guacamole and salsa provided some taste, as did a pie-eating contest, while in the arena, the Ranch Games, tractor driving contest, and lawnmower races kept folks busy, and the return of Derby Days saw weenie dog races and turtle races, with sizable payouts.

The day culminated with a barbecue hosted by the Moffat County High School girls basketball program, leading up to the livestock sale for 4-H and FFA members and the late-night dance.
