There aren't the flashing lights of any carnival rides, or big name musical performers, but Eau Claire County Extension officials say the county's junior fair has plenty events that celebrate youth and the family.
And that's the focus for the junior fair that opened Thursday with some small animal judging.
The fair stays away from any commercial exhibits. Katy Forsythe, Extension 4-H and Youth Agent, says instead, the projects brought in by about 500 area kids are showcased.
She says Friday and Saturday will be "Kids' Days" at the fair. Special activities for kids include a variety of games, a petting zoo, balloon sculptures, and face painting.
Forsythe says the fair also features inexpensive food, along with a pie baking contest set for Sunday.
Sunday is also "Seniors' Day" with wagon rides, a polka band, and an antique appraisal.
There are no admission or parking fees.
