What a fantastic turnout we had for Pet-O-Ween this year! Even with the snow and sudden cold snap, people still braved it for an entertaining and wild time! We are always impressed by the sheer creativity of the costumes and this year was no exception. The highlight was the "Chicken Taco"! 
This was one very tame rooster. He handled the noise and countless doggos wanting to check him out very well. 

All in all a howling good time was had. We thank our vendors every year for helping supply us with all of the free samples that we can give away to everyone who comes to the event!

Enjoy these photos from this years Pet-O-Ween pet costume contest!

The heart and soul of 4H
The heart and soul of 4H
What a fabulous fair this year! The excitement and anticipation was palpable as hundreds of kids organized and cleaned up their animals to show, polished their projects to put on display and even more parents and grandparents gathered to help and admire all the hard work that goes into 4H Fair.  The Metra Park was a buzz of activity for the entire week with horse shows, rabbit shows, bovine and swine shows and all of the other critters in the barns. It's never an easy thing to raise an animal for months, giving them all the proper care they need to thrive, then to sell them at market... but that process sure does offer a lot of life lessons to those kids as they learn about just what it takes to be responsible. 
We LOVE helping out those fair kids with all the show supplies and feed they need to have a successful show season. We love being able to cater to all the critters and most of the sports and to see all that hard work pay off. We know all the parents and kids are sure happy when 
fair is over, but just as equally excited to get started on the next year for 4H fair at the Montana Fair. 
Looking SHARP for the show!
