One northeast Missouri Fair will be ending this weekend, but there is still a lot to see.
The Sullivan County Fair has been going on at the American Legion Building and Grounds since Sunday.
The Fair Queen Pageant took place Tuesday night and FFA and 4-H students from Milan, Green City and surrounding areas have been exhibiting their projects since Wednesday.
Goat and Sheep Shows were held on Thursday and a Small Animal Show was held Friday morning.
Some kids say that this event gives them a chance to share their projects and show their dedication to agriculture.
"It teaches us a lot of responsibility and hard work. You can't just give up, you just got to keep doing it," said 4-H Student Mary Watt.
The fair continued Friday night with the Swine Show and concludes Saturday with a breakfast. The Beef Show starts at 8 a.m. and the Super Farmer Contest at 2 p.m.
Many students will be showing their animals again at other county fairs in the next few weeks.
