Bumblebees and Truckers Buzz Fair

Wednesday’s Clarke County Fair featured heavy duty trucks competing to drag a high-tech sled the farthest as well as more traditional livestock competitions geared to supporting current and future farmers.

Last night’s truck pull did not disappoint fair-goers hoping to see over-sized tires throw mud into the night sky. The smell of alcohol fuel exhaust wafted through the heavy and hot air as the truck engines deafened the watchful crowd.

Earlier in the evening, the Berryville Bumblebees, a pre-4H club for six to eight year olds, sponsored a parade for members and their animals. A “librarian cow” and other animals sporting the latest fashions were all the rage.

As with every Clarke County Fair, volunteers are the unsung heroes of the event. The Clarke County Fair would not be possible without their effort. Many thanks to all of the members of our community, and especially the Ruritan Club of Clarke County, who work so hard throughout the year and during the event to make the Clarke County Fair a success.
