Davis County Fair continues with 4-H judging

The Davis County Fair is celebrating 150 years, and a big part of the tradition is 4-H.

The fairgrounds in Bloomfield were packed Friday afternoon for the second full day of the Davis County Fair.

4-H activities continued with beef, dairy poultry and rabbit shows, following the horse and sheep shows Thursday. Many of the 4-H projects this year focused on the fair's 150th anniversary and Davis County 4-H member Victoria Vannoni said the best part of representing 4-H at the fair is being a role model for the younger kids.

"Seeing them enjoy all the stuff, especially when they walk through the 4-H building, just watching their eyes light up when they see something they like, it's just why I continue to do it," Vannoni said. "Even though there's all that struggle of clean-up and getting it all done, it's all worth it when you see the kids' eyes light up."

Vannoni and fellow 4-H member Sarah Deaton said being involved in the group is a lot more work than many people realize. It takes a lot of time and dedication to put together your project and when it's all done, you then have to present it to the judges.

"I love the judging, I love to sit down and tell them what I did," Deaton said. "I'm a talker, I like to sit down and talk to people, that's why I do it."

-Joie Chitwood Thrill Show, Friday, 8 p.m.
