The Pulaski County Fairgrounds will be ready for the upcoming 4-H Fair. It officially gets under way Saturday, June 29 and continues through July 5. The fairgrounds is located at the back of the Winamac Town Park, which was flooded when recent rains forced the Tippecanoe River from its banks.
Natalie Federer with Purdue Extension Pulaski County says fair board members are busy cleaning up. “Some of the water has receded. It’s still kind of wet down there, but the water is out of the buildings. We’re going to be working very hard in the next couple of days to get the buildings cleaned out again and pressure washed and sanitized, but we are on schedule again, and the fair will be down at the fairgrounds.”
Federer adds that pre-judging of exhibits will start this weekend, and the annual dog show will also take place. Livestock will start arriving next Friday, June 28, and the fair begins the next day. The rest of the livestock animals will arrive that morning. The 4-H recognition and royalty programs are also scheduled that day, along with a leader recognition program. The 4-H exhibit buildings will be open that afternoon.
The Pulaski County Fair continues through Friday, July 5. Admission and parking are free.
