If you and your kiddos aren’t showing animals at the fair, there are still lots of great reasons to come down early.
The fun run is scheduled to start at 8 a.m. on Saturday morning, August 13, with the kiddie run immediately following. Children’s arts and crafts, which will include “marbalizing on paper,” face painting and hair braids are all scheduled to start at 10 a.m., along with a demonstration by Bradley’s Taekwondo of Chewelah, animal showing in the fair barn and Kiddie Bingo in the Grange Hall. Rachael and Emma Larsen, along with other local talent, will be performing on center stage and the finals for the 3-on-3 basketball tournament will take place …all this before noon.
The kiddie parade line-up will begin at 12:30 p.m. and will start with the main parade at 1 p.m. The VFW Color Guard will present the American Flag and Emma Larsen will start the parade by singing our National Anthem.
Kiddie carnival games will open directly following the parade along with the cake walk, goat decorating, coloring contest, apple pie contest, center stage entertainment and lots of animal and creative exhibits to view.
Put this date in your planner, bring your kiddos down to the 84th Annual Valley Community Fair and enjoy this Good Ole Fashion Fair Fun!
