The Yavapai County Fair is officially open!
Last night’s Opening Ceremony of the 2016 Yavapai County Fair marked the official start of art displays, 4H and FFA livestock auctions and carnival rides.
The Opening Ceremonies featured a gigantic American Flag, a performance by a Yavapai County equestrian drill team and presentation of awards.
Prescott High School student David Pearce was honored for his cover artwork of the Fair’s program, and received a couple of checks. One for himself, and one for his art teacher, Amanda Chartier.
The Fair will be open through Sunday, with a different focus each day. There’s a lot to see and do - everything from critters to carnival rides - so be sure to plan to come and take it all in.
