2016 Fair season has only a few events left in this year...
The 2016 fair season had its' share of rainy nights. We do not believe that any member of KAFHS was blessed with a fully dry week. But if so, then the heat and humidity was horrendous for attendees. The weather is something that all fair managers should figure into your plans, because weather will do what it wants to. There’s not much available one can do to counter Mother Nature. Just plan, prepare, and have options available to keep the overall event on track. Planning 101: stay on the good side of your local weather forecaster.

The KY State Fair just concluded with a wonderful time had by all. It makes one proud to be a part of the workings and buildup for the premier fair for our state. Your local fair provided folks to compete in the different areas of showmanship for the entertainment setting of the State fair. We can all be proud of our contribution and hope to improve for next year. Did you go to the KY State Fair? If not, make it a point to attend in 2017.

KAFHS Little Mr and Miss Pageant is a part of the opening day activities for the KY State Fair. We had many couples present for the competition. Henderson County Fair representatives: Amelia Gail Jones and Walker Trammel were the winning couple. Present from KAFHS member fairs were winners of the Miss Pageants up to this point in the fair season. We had many young ladies there to assist in the opening ceremonies and in the Little Mr and Miss pageant. The grace and assistance by the young Misses are a blessing and a part of the experience of winning on the local level. The Miss contestants’ get a little stage presence for the 2017 KY County Fair pageant in January. We thank them and wish them the best of luck for each in the competition to come.
