The 75th annual South Logan County Fair will get underway next Tuesday and continues through Saturday, Sept. 8.
The first day schedule includes assembling of education booths and check-in of home economics exhibits, except house plants, from noon to 7 p.m.
The annual hay show is set for 5:30 p.m., followed by the hay show meal, which is followed by the 12th annual kids show-de-o, all of which are sponsored by First Western Bank.
The show-de-o is a 4-H and FFA competition which provides monetary awards to the top three individual finishers in competitions which include a pedal tractor pull for kids 5 and under; a greased pig scramble for those 6 to 8.
Three person teams of 9 to 12-year olds will compete in scarecrow stuffing — which include adult overalls, long s-sleeved shirts, something like a teddy bear for a head, and a hat — 13 to 15-year olds compete in a watermelon seed spitting contest, and those 16 to 19 compete in a hay stacking contest.
Baked goods will also be judged at 7:30 Tuesday.
The Wednesday, Sept. 5, schedule includes home economics judging, livestock and poultry check-in and a singing by area church members.
The Thursday, Sept. 6, schedule includes entry of house plants, poultry judging, the rabbit show, the annual chuckwagon dinner sponsored by First Western, and musical entertainment.
