4-H Youth Fair: By kids for kids
From the art and animals, to the entertainment and vendors, the annual 4-H Youth Fair is run by kids.
The Berkshire Eagle reports Saturday, more than 50 students showed off their talents at the 4-H fairgrounds on Utility Road.
While livestock showing is a big draw to the annual event, for others,it's all about the animals.
For some kids, 4-H is a family tradition that is passed on through generations. For others, it's the children who get interested first and then bring their parents into the loop.
Charlotte Tupper, of Florida, became decided to start showing rabbits when she was 7 years old.
Now 10, she's a junior in the 4-H program and is able to show them at the fair, said her father, Seth.
As Saturday's fair comes to an end, the organizers are ready to jump into next year's plans, according to Fiora.
Next summer's event will be the 80th anniversary of the fair and organizers want to make it extra special.
