Fair offers chance to dress like a farmer PDF Print E-mail


• Leader & Times

The Five State Fair will have a variety of entertainment for this year’s festivities, and one of the activities children will be able to take part in will be the Dress Like a Farmer relay. 

 The Dress Like a Farmer Relay will start at 12:30 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 26 just outside the Activity Center. The event is a Relay Race for kids ages 5 to 12, and participants will race two at a time, while they try to put on a western shirt, a pair of overalls, a pair of boots and a cowboy hat. The top three fastest kids in each age group will receive a prize. 

“This is a fun relay for kids to enjoy some fun competition,” coordinator Rosa Conley said. “Last year we did  the ‘Dress Like a Farmer’ relay as part of our kids day activities held only on Saturday morning.  This year we went away from ‘Kids Day’ and scheduled kids activities and kids entertainment several times throughout the weekend.  This way you can attend all weekend have plenty to see and participate in.  What I am really excited to see, is all the kids that participate last year, and hope that they will bring a friend or two to join them.  I enjoy seeing the children of all ages being able to participate.  The fair is not just about coming out looking around and leaving, its about  being able participate and having fun!”

The inspiration for the event, which started during last year’s fair festivities, came from another fair Conley said she attended in the past. 

“I picked it up from a festival my family had attended about fine years ago in New York  and I was eager  to bring this to our community,” Conley said. “Even though the attendance was lower than I hoped,  they still enjoyed the game and was excited to participate.  There are a lot of fun, and free activities planned for this year, and  I encourage parents to bring their families out, enjoy the food, music and shows!  Growing up in Liberal and being involved with the fair since I was 5 years old, I have so many fair memories that I hold very close to my heart.  And now by being part of the planning of those activities, I can only hope to help create fun fair memories in the families of our community.”

Conley also added encouragement for the community to attend the other fair activities. 

“There will be multiple free activities for our kids in the community to enjoy starting on Friday, from magic to fire juggling, so I encourage everyone to check out the schedule online at www.fivestatefair.com and plan a weekend of fun with your family!” Conley said.
