The Maryland State Fair began this past weekend, and amazing sights and sounds are to be explored. Where else can one go to enjoy the pleasures of carnival food and wild rides?
Appreciate the hard work and dedication the youth of participating 4-H clubs from around the state. The 4-H was organized in 1902 by the National Institute of Food and Agricultural and emphasizes youth development. The kids are actively involved in showing a variety of farm animals in the State Fair. They are judged based on presentation and how well they are able to guide their livestock.
A surprising show was the Llamas and Alpacas group. All were totally adorable.
And the pigs and goats were in on the shows as well.
With barns filled with livestock, you would think the smells of farm life would be strong. But these animals are prized possessions and are groomed more than you can imagine. There was the Cow Wash, the Goat Wash, and the Goat Hair dressers.
There is so much more to explore at the fair. Stay tuned tomorrow for some fun adventures at the Maryland State Fair.
