The barns are filled with animals, rides are ready to thrill and excite and exhibits are in place. Yes, the Wood County Fair opened to the public this morning for its 2013 run.
The corner of Poe and Haskins Road was busy all weekend as vendors were brought in their trailers and set up their booths to sell their wares. Exhibitors lined up to bring in their quilts and knitted creations to be judged in the Home and Garden World building, while nearby the homemade wines were being judged. Across the midway, countless others were brought their art, photographs, hobbies and handicrafts for display in the Fine Arts Building.
The first blue ribbons and rosettes were awarded on Saturday in needlework, wines, home brew as well as handicraft and hobbies. Canning, photography, industrial arts, needlework and FFA projects were among the categories which were judged on Sunday.
The 4-H clubs have their booths ready for viewing in the Junior Fair Building, which is also where you will find the FFA exhibits.

The pork-a-leans, elephant ears, funnel cakes, lemonade and 4-H milkshakes are waiting to satisfy the palates of fairgoers.
Tonight, the Junior Fair Queen and King will be crowned. In addition to the Junior Fair Parade, the opening festivities will also include the ribbon-cutting for the 4-H Quilt Square Trail, recognition of the inaugural Wood County Agricultural Hall of Fame inductee, and the always moving Post Everlasting Ceremony.
