The creative displays of vegetables and fruit are in a couple of different locations inside the Agriculture Barn at this year's Ravalli County Fair. The contests were open to kids and adults. The results are fun. The garden produce also shares space with bees and honey and some fun scarecrows.

The Agriculture Barn, the Floral Building, the Youth Building and the Event Center all contain thousands of entries in the fair's exhibitor categories. And there are plenty of forest fire pictures in the photo display, too.

During the first day of the fair Wednesday, among other events, judging continues on farm animals, at noon the horse, mule and donkey show is at the main grandstand rodeo arena and the FFA cake, cookie and pie auction will be at 6 p.m. at the KLYQ Entertainment Stage.

The evening Main Arena entertainment Wednesday is Rockin' RC's Ranch Rodeo with teams of Montana cowboys and cowgirls competing in branding, sorting, loading and, of course, wild cow milking. The 5-member teams are competing for some pretty good prize money, too.

The Ravalli County Fair and Rockin' RC Rodeo is underway Wednesday!
