Observations all along the line - Kimball & the Southern Panhandle First


Friday Night Brings Rubber Check Race, Mini-Bulls, Mutton Busting

The Kimball-Banner County Fair is in full swing, with some events already completed.

Archery was held last Wednesday evening, followed by clothing exhibits, a fashion revue and table setting on Thursday.

Receiving a variety of Grand Champions in archery were Jace Reich, Luke Olsen, Isaac Olsen, Jalanna Krakow and Giacomo Varra.

The dog show and static exhibits were on the agenda for Monday, and the results are in the books.

With a change of the schedule from previous years, animals began showing up at the fairgrounds on Tuesday for check-in and weigh-in. Swine, sheep, goats, and beef arrived bright and early Tuesday morning.

The horse show was set for Wednesday. The full day includes showmanship, halter, pleasure, trail, pole bending and barrels. This will be followed by the Gymkhana and the free BBQ on Thursday.

With the new schedule, swine and sheep will be shown on Thursday, and Friday is the beef show. Saturday beginning at 1 p.m. will be the livestock auction.

Friday evening entertainment is the mini bulls and mutton busting, and Saturday evening is the first Rubber Check Race.

On Friday and Saturday, the Kimball County Ag Society is sponsoring a number of free bounce houses for the kids on the Midway.
