You say you're still working on that ceramic art or maybe a photo entry for the Ravalli County Fair in Hamilton? Well, keep on working. The fair is not until the week of August 25. HOWEVER, you need to have your entry form in to the fair office by 5 p.m. Friday, August 9. There are no exceptions for late entries, by the way. The easiest way to do it is by filling out an On-line form at the fair website for Open Class entries.

The Hamilton fairgrounds will be loaded with exhibits from all over the valley and from all ages. It truly is an exhibitors' fair and the display areas have been improved and moved around this year to give easier access and also provide better display areas. Don't forget to follow the rules for your specific category. Those rules are in the Fair Book, which is also online at the Ravalli County Fair website. KLYQ Radio will again host the Event Stage in the commercial area of the fairgrounds. We have a full lineup of local talent - everything from singers to cloggers. The national attraction this year is everybody's favorite hypnotist, Michael Mezmer. He'll have two shows a day - at 2 p.m. and 5 p.m. Wednesday through Saturday, August 28-31. We'll see you at the fair!
